Lincoln's Birthday
- This is a good time for recalling the acts of these impressive American that faced an entire system even though it would put a nation on a collision course.

This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of Negro slaves who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of their captivity." Martin Luther King Jr.
