Lincoln's Greatest Speech: The Second Inaugural
Review by Sue@spiritualbookclub.com on 2007-08-30
Wow, to get to see Abraham Lincoln's own handwriting is worth the price of this book. To get to read Abraham Lincoln's speech, in the day and age when presidents wrote their own speeches with their own thoughts, well, it's incredibly awe-inspiring. What a man he was. What a courageous man. What an amazing orator, president, wise soul. Enjoy this book. One person in our spirituality book club asked, "Why do you think we don't have politicians like this anymore? I mean, he endures in the American mindset, so why don't politicians want to be like him?" Someone later responded, "He was assassinated. All peacemakers eventually get assassinated, or at least have threats made against them. Maybe that's why."
