Lincoln on Thanksgiving

Lincoln's National Day of Thanksgiving Proclamation

It has seemed to me 
fit and proper that
God should be solemnly,
reverently and gratefully 
as with one heart
and one voice,
by the whole 
American people.

If you have not seen the new movie of Lincoln, starring Daniel Day Lewis and Sally Fields, then I urge to do so this holiday weekend.  He truly was our "Redeemer President," bearing within himself our divided union to the end of his life.  By his life and death we were given a new birth of freedom.  Will we ever see his likes again in the Presidency?
