Picture
"The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present. The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise with the occasion. As our case is new, so we must think anew and act anew. We must disenthrall ourselves, and then we shall save our country. Fellow-citizens, we cannot escape history. . . . No personal significance or insignificance can spare one or another of us. The fiery trial through which we pass will light us down in honor or dishonor to the latest generation." ― A. Lincoln

Which topics of today does this quote fit?
             I say certainly climate change.
             Like in Lincoln's time, like coal, oil and gas, slavery was the largest part of the economy and had the deepest roots in money.
             Like in Lincoln's time, slavery split the nation and threatened its future.
             Like in Lincoln's time, the few who stood for the right were indeed few. But they believed they were led by God to do what was right for the whole nation and the world.
             Circumstance (the war) forced the hand of the rest of the nation, but the abolitionists and freedmen had prepared the way and, even though the work is still not done, they were ready on the other side to continue that work.
             Circumstance is upon us now. The "stormy present" is literally the stormy present. People are seeing the coming catastrophes that we, with our use of coal, oil and gas, are creating. And some of us, because we are looking, do see a new future which is cleaner and better. Now is our time.

Hey great website! Does running a blog like this take a large amount of work? I've very little understanding of computer programming but I had been hoping to start my own blog in the near future. Anyway, if you have any ideas or techniques for new blog owners please share. I know this is off topic however I just had to ask. Thanks a lot!

I can still remember how good he was as a president and now we have to choose between Trump and Hilary. Awful choice.

Abraham Lincoln left a memorable mark that will forever be in our minds. He was a good leader, and implemented helpful laws that are still existing. But there are certain problems that are still left unanswered. How I wish it's easy to solve a certain problem. Just like in mining. It's been here hundred years ago. But the government is still having a hard time solving this problem.
