Gettysburg Address

Jim DeRosa reminds us that today is the anniversary of Lincoln's Gettysburg Address.

How casually have our leaders cast aside the fundamentals of our Democracy in the name of cowardice.

It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth. - President Abraham Lincoln
