Gettysburg Address

“The brave men, living and dead, who struggles here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they long who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to THE GREAT TASK BEFORE US – that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion – that we here highly resolve that these dead SHALL NOT HAVE DIED IN VAIN- THAT THIS NATION, UNDER GOD, SHALL HAVE A NEW BIRTH OF FREEDOM – and that GOVERNMENT OF THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE shall not perish from the earth. ” (Abraham Lincoln Nov 19, 1863 part of the Gettysburg Address)

We have tried to take history from our schools, we have taken God from so many walks of life…but God has never left he is there more and more seeing who will hold his name….our generations to come deserve to know so they don’t relive the mistakes of the past…our honored dead and veterans deserve our great nation that God has given us to be upheld to the standards that they have paid the ultimate price for as Lincoln said “Under God”… and put God back where he belongs in every walk of our lives… God is the reason we have been blessed…and our fore fathers knew it…

My wife wrote this in response to an excerpt she read from the Gettysburg Address that she found fitting for our current times.
