I n growing up I was always proud

L incoln spent so much of his life here

L eaving us only for a higher calling.

I nto the fray of national division he strode

N ow convicted of the certainty of the cause.

O nly in the quiet moments alone could he bear the grief

I n the need to calm the nation by bathing it in blood

S o that all men could here be free.

    I'm sure Lincoln struggled with his choices, but the end result of the war was freedom for all Americans. What a great man he was! I share your admiration for him and really enjoyed this creative acrostic, Daniel. Love, Carolyn
