Abraham Lincoln Kind and Good

“If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business. I do the very best I know how – the very best I can; and I mean to keep doing so until the end. If the end brings me out all right, what’s said against me won’t amount to anything. If the end brings me out wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.”

I am in awe of the inner strength any president must have to be criticised daily from voices around the world – yet remain true and unwavering in his goals. It’s hard enough to withstand harsh words as a “regular” person. Lincoln was right; trust your inner core and perhaps put on blinders.

This blog title is from a song my kindergartners came home singing around President’s Day holiday:

“Abraham Lincoln kind and good
Was loved and honored by many
To always remember this president
We put his face on the penny.”
