After recently watching the A&E series, The Revolution, I have gotten even more of an education about our First President and Commander-In-Chief. And I have always been a fond admirer of Abraham Lincoln.
Today, we honor both men… and ostensibly all of the men who Americans, over the years, have elected as their leader.
We should also remember today that the fundamental power, and curbs on power, the US Constitution and its system of divided and fractured government brought to our nation and the world. It may be slow and frustrating sometimes, but over the long run… it does work.
