Virginia but Antietem which is in Maryland. Anyway, I became interested in the history of the period and the people who lived at the time, especially, Lincoln.
If you haven't seen the new movie "LINCOLN", you must see it. It is incredible. The acting is superb and you will probably come out knowing some things you didn't know before. For me, perhaps the two most enduring scenes were towards the end:1) Lincoln deliviering the second Inagural Address - there were no mics then. You had to know how to project your voice. What beautiful words.2) Lincoln walking down the hallway of the White House on his way to the Theatre. I have often heard about the Lincoln ghost and that is just the way I pictured him: shoulders slumped a little from carrying the weight of the world on them; his gait a kinda clumping along, and a stove top hat on his head.
This was truely an amazing film. I am so glad I saw it. Well worth the time.

I have had the opportunity to travel and to see fantastic sights. I have had a good education I have been allowed to work. I live in the best country in the world. I can vote. I get to see my friends and play games with them. I can read the books I want. I can see the movies I want. I can sing out loud(if I dare). I can wear what I want. I can worship my God and praise His name when I want.
I celebrate Thanksgiving every day and I hope I never stop saying how grateful I am.

Yesterday, I thought about it and decided to find an old invoice in the hopes that the problem could be corrected. I drove over and the head guy came out. The guy I had had the problem was reluctent to come over but finally he did. I told him that I had come to apologize. He was so surprised he couldn't believe it. I realized that I really did feel badly about the way I had acted. The apology was real and it felt good. They found that someone had entered information into the computer incorrectly and had messed us up. They managed to correct it.
I am really glad I went back. It was the right decision.
