Abe Lincoln

“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich...strengthen the weak by weakening the strong...bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift...lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down...build character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and independence...help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves." -Abraham Lincoln

National Day of Pray

Harry Truman signed a bill on April 17, 1952 for the nation to come together in a day of pray, the day would be picked by the President of the USA.  Ronald Regan in 1988 changed it to the first Thursday in May.  All religions are asked to come together and pray for our nation, and those in it.  Pray that we are on the correct path of freedom.

On this beautiful day I hope all will remember our military and pray for them as we also pray for all our friends and loved ones. Isn't it great to be free to pray as we want?
