Hug a GI Day
-- Give a great big hug to any and all GIs you see today. The men and women in our armed forces deserve our thanks and appreciation. GI's perform an invaluable service to our country.

Abraham Lincoln's First Inauguration
-- "I am loth (sic) to close. We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battle-field, and patriot grave, to every living heart and hearthstone, all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature."
Abraham Lincoln, First Inaugural Address, March 4, 1861.
