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.

Actually, on the rails today. I am headed to New York City. Train just departed from the recently renovated Union Station in Washington, DC.

A weekend trip to see an exhibition at the Metropolitain Museum of Art. The exhibit, Heavenly Bodies, explores the influence of the Catholic Churchon on fashion. It includes a collection of items from the Vatican.

Washington, D.C. Monuments and Buildings

While I actually live just across the Potomac River from the US capital,  Washington, D.C. is where I take my visitors. There is so much to do see and most of it is free. These are a few of my favorite places.
