I Look Forward to Meeting Him
I Look Forward to Meeting Him

Before Spielberg’s movie “Lincoln” made it big and brought renewed interest in the 16th President, for me, I was fortunate enough to have picked up a book titled “America’s Great Debate” which has to do with the Compromise of 1850. Then I stumbled upon “Year of the Meteors” which covers the decade before the Civil War basically picking up where the previous book left off.

So, I was then compelled to search for, find and read Doris Kearns Goodwin’s (of Concord, Mass) “Team of Rivals,” upon which Spielberg’s “Lincoln” is based. NOW, I am determined to purchase the 8 Volume (9 with the index book) 1953 Complete Writings of Abraham Lincoln.

I compare myself to no man. I compare myself only to the example of Jesus Christ. But, if we’re talking only of men, then I’d have to say there are probably not many men comparable to Lincoln, in the history of the world. His insight, humility and magnanimity is unmatched that I’ve ever seen or read of.

I have always tried to assume blame when it was mine to assume. I have always tried not to embarrass another when they were at fault but what I have ever attempted pales in comparison to what this great man was capable of being. I won’t say “doing,” because it was his being, his character, I think that made him that way. I am continuously dumbfounded by his love, caring, genius, insight and ability.

I strive, daily, to be like Jesus, but I’d love to be able to incorporate, also, a sliver of what Abraham Lincoln was.
