How appropriate this time of year that the movie Lincoln opened, I had the pleasure of seeing this movie over the weekend. I can not express how thankful for our very freedom we all should be regardless of our skin color. The strength and resolve of President Lincoln saved this county from an utter implosion .
Had the 13th amendment not passed, which abolished slavery in this country I believe this country could not have survived and as a result I seriously doubt any of us would enjoy the freedoms we enjoy today, not only did the 13th amendment end slavery in this country it also hastened its end around the world.
President Lincoln like millions of other Americans gave all to what he believed, I am proud and so very thankful that he had the courage and resolve to champion his beliefs and pursue the end of slavery no matter the consequence
Well done Mr. Lincoln, well done!
