With Malice Toward None, With Charity For All

From President Abraham Lincoln’s Second Inaugural Address

Text of Lincoln’s Second Inaugural Address, The Lincoln Memorial, Washington, DC

With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation’s wounds; to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just, and a lasting peace, among ourselves, and with all nations.

Flight 93 National Memorial

In Memory of 40 Heroes

Located in rural Somerset County, Pennsylvania, the Flight 93 National Memorial honors the 40 crew and passengers of United Airlines Flight 93 who died on September 11, 2001. The flight was hijacked by terrorists who intended to attack Washington, DC.  The plane crashed in a field near Shanksville after passengers and crew fought back against the terrorists who had taken control of the flight.

Railroad Ruminations

I have decided to go for atmosphere over focus and clarity, both of which are hard to achieve on a moving train. Last night departing Kansas City about 10 pm.

Prairie Moonrise at Sunset

Dusk fell soon after the train departed Chicago. The gray skies cleared as the moon rose. Amazing what a smart phone can do through a dirty train window in low light. With a little help from Snapseed
