Abraham Lincoln's Coffee Party

[img_assist|nid=75|title=Fitting and Proper|desc=|link=none|align=left|width=100|height=73]In 1865, in his second inaugural address, United States president Abraham Lincoln painted a picture of a country struggling to understand the horrors of the Civil War. Once set in motion, events follow their own course beyond our control, Lincoln said. He warned the Americans of the futility and danger in following rigid principles to reconstruct a broken nation. Because we cannot know what is to come, Lincoln told us, we must strive to be flexible in our efforts and respond in ways that are "fitting and proper."(Phil Lawson-Being Spherical)


What would Abraham Lincoln suggest if he were living today? Would he be willing to sit down and have a cup of coffee and discuss our nations issues? I think so (just maybe not with me). After the Civil War, the North had won a significant battle. He did not tell the people to follow the rules of a zero sum game. He did not recommend that we obstruct democracy but that we be "flexible in our efforts."


Flexible: susceptible of modification or adaptation


Our nation is hurting. I am hurting. I'm tired of the sides. I'm tired of the nation hitting the reset button every time a republican or democrat takes office. I'm tired of the name calling. I'm tired of the blaming.


It's time to come together. Together we stand and divided we will fall. The question one must ask is....


"Am I being flexible in my efforts to work with my country and am I responding in ways that are fitting and proper?


As of today and now....yes I am and yes I will. How about you?
