A Time to Mourn…….

April 18, 2013

bald_eagle_head_and_american_flag1A time to mourn the dead, a time to comfort the injured, and a time to embrace each other!

There are no satisfactory whys to explain the act of terrorism on innocent people in the Cradle of Liberty!

The words spoke so elegantly by Lincoln some 150 years ago on a battlefield of unfathomable carnage reminds us of who we are and what to do:

“It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining 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, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”
