Abraham Lincoln's 208th Birthday

“Common looking people are the best in the world:
that is the reason the Lord makes so many of them.”

“I claim not to have controlled events, but confess plainly that events have controlled me.”

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.

- Abraham Lincoln
(12 Feb 1809 - 15 Apr 1865)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   Today's theme is supposed to repeat every year, barring technical difficulties.....

BONUS #1 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GX5C7ODxkJs - Battle Hymn of the Republic - The Mormon Tabernacle Choir on Touched By An Angel - WOWZERONI-RINI!

BONUS #2 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PHqF9FYp5UE - Battle Hymn of the Republic - The (full) Mormon Tabernacle Choir

BONUS #3 - http://www.angelfire.com/weird2/cluckmeat/music.html - Battle Hymn of the Republic - As much as a thrill it is to hear that version, I must tell you it's an even bigger thrill to sing it in a choir of near size as   The Best Dressed Girl in the Class of 1959, My Sister, Eleanor (Buckley Nowitzky of NC),    My #5 Son, Nathaniel (Harty - Hillsboro HS, IL - '97 - of IL),     My #6 Son, Dale (Harty - (Hillsboro HS, IL / American School, IL - '02 - of CA) and   I ('65 - of NC) did in Raleigh on Sunday, September 15, 2002. There's regrettably no audio, but scroll halfway down for the exciting images.

“It isn't as bad as you sometimes think it is. It all works out. Don't worry. I say that to myself every morning. It will all work out. If you do your best, it will all work out. Put your trust in God, and move forward with faith and confidence in the future. The Lord will not forsake us. He will not forsake us....If we will put our trust in Him, if we will pray to Him, if we will live worthy of His blessings, He will hear our prayers.”

- Gordon B. Hinckley, 01 Mar 1997
(23 June 1910 - 27 Jan 2008)

FINALLY:

From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 02/11/17:

A local charity had never received a donation from the town’s banker, so the director made a phone call. “Our records show you make $500,000 a year, yet you haven’t given a penny to charity,” the director began. “Wouldn’t you like to help the community?”

The banker replied, “Did your research show that my mother is ill, with extremely expensive medical bills?”

“Um, no,” mumbled the director.

“Or that my brother is unemployed? Or that my sister’s husband left, leaving her broke with four kids?”

“I … I … I had no idea.”

“So,” said the banker, “if I don’t give them any money, why would I give any to you?”

The Battle Hymn of the Republic

- Julia Ward Howe


Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord
He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored,
He has loosed the fateful lightening of His terrible swift sword
His truth is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

I have seen Him in the watch-fires of a hundred circling camps
They have builded Him an altar in the evening dews and damps
I can read His righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps
His day is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

I have read a fiery gospel writ in burnish`d rows of steel,
"As ye deal with my contemners, So with you my grace shall deal;"
Let the Hero, born of woman, crush the serpent with his heel
Since God is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat
He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgment-seat
Oh, be swift, my soul, to answer Him! be jubilant, my feet!
Our God is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea,
With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me:
As He died to make men holy, let us die to make men free,
While God is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.
