The Gettysburg Address

We are reviewing History this week in the class I teach at our Tutoring Center. We have left the Civil War behind us, and I am so pleased the way our textbook took the students through it. The nobility, and humanity, of the people behind the sad period of our History, are so beautifully stressed in the book. I showed them also this Youtube of the Gettysburg Address. I have mentioned before how my dad loved this speech and had it framed in his office. Mother also would often tell us of her streaming tears as she first visited the Lincoln Memorial in DC. So, even before I was an American citizen, because of my parents, I grew to know and love Lincoln's heart.

They were a life-giving, radiante couple. I am so, so fortunate to have had them as parents.
