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 character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves." -Abraham Lincoln

Debbie said...

It's beautiful Rose. I don't know if I am following but I'll look to see how if I'm not, I suck at this sort of thing. LOL.
My boyfriend was in Desert Storm and we are very supportive of our military, we both carry cards with us from Wreaths Across America and hand them out to thank people who have served whenever we find them, we have met some wonderful people, a few WW2 vets, it brings tears to them and us to hand them that card and say thank you, sometimes they share a story, sometimes just a smile and a feeble handshake, that makes me cry even more. We are so blessed to live in this country despite all our problems I believe we are at our best when we honor those who gave all.
