I stopped at the Lincoln Memorial, my favorite national monument, on my visit to the National Mall early this morning. It never fails to inspire me, and I stop there whenever I can for a few minutes of silent, awed contemplation of our greatest President.
This morning I was struck by the message on the sign placed near the Lincoln statue. It’s probably unnecessary — I’ve never heard anything but hushed whispers in my prior visits — but I appreciated it nevertheless.
Don’t you wish people took heed of the sign as they talked about, say, the 2016 presidential campaign?
