The Gettysburg Address

Today is the 150th Anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address. Grand-Dad suggested some time ago that I should have the girls memorize it this year for that reason. Since they have good memories it seemed like a fun challenge. Kennedy's performance is actually a bit toned down from what it was at one point. You can kind of tell she's driving Reagan crazy as her reaction is not to make a single facial expression during the recitation. In anycase, especially during this month where we give thanks I'm extremely grateful for the tremendous leadership our country has had. I have read several books on Lincoln, my favorite being "With Malice Towards None," and he was quite the remarkable individual. Wish we had a few more politicians and leaders of his caliber around today! With no further adieu here are Reagan (6) and Kennedy (4) reciting Lincoln's Gettysburg Address.
