Memorial Day Tribute: “. . . That from these Honored Dead We take Increased Devotion. . .” – Video

Happy Thanksgiving!

Giving thanks to God is part of the very fabric of our nation, even since before we were a nation. The first settlers who came to America came looking for religious freedom, and they did not forget to thank God for His blessings even in the midst of difficult circumstances. May we have that same spirit and fortitude.

Here is a video that shares the words of President Abraham Lincoln’s Thanksgiving Proclamation in 1863 – right in the middle of the Civil War. Lincoln’s words reflect the kind of spirit that built and preserved this nation. That faith and reliance on God exhibited by Lincoln, and by so many through the history of our nation, may be in the minority today, but it is still alive and will hopefully flourish once again. I hope you and your family have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

“. . . The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here. But it can never forget what they did here. It is for us, the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. 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. . .”

Here is video of Newt Gingrich in Florida yesterday where he showed how to deal with a Left-wing heckler. Gingrich told the crowd that Abraham Lincoln had given some instructive advice on how to consider such people:

“Abraham Lincoln once said, ‘If you’re debating somebody who will not agree that 2+2=4, you will never win the debate because facts make no difference. (Point at the heckler) We just met one of Abraham Lincoln’s debating partners for whom facts make no difference. . . . Noise without knowledge is not a free society – it’s anarchy.”

No! He didn’t?

Oh yes, he did. At the University of Maryland last week, Obama talked with some students and actually compared the way he is trying to handle the Debt Limit negotiations to the way President Abraham Lincoln handled the Emancipation Proclamation!

Can there be anyone who doubts The One’s immense ego?
