Abraham Lincoln – Remember

I woke up, like many, in a somber mood. I spent the day thinking about what last night’s election decision meant for the country and the liberties we hold dear. This morning, our head of school shared a quote of Abraham Lincoln — one he said in 1865; one about healing our wounds and building the bridges to unite the country; one about placing country and policy over party. This has been my saving grace. This is what I will focus on. I choose not to go around somber. Rather, I choose to continue the fight to protect our liberties now even more than ever. And one of those is our right to vote and respect the differences that make us Americans.
