Today is the birthday of one of America's greatest Presidents - Abraham Lincoln.  And I believe it is important to pause and recognize the significant contributions this leader made in the development of our nation.  Not only did he lead our nation through its greatest conflict - our civil war, but he also issued the Emancipation Proclamation, effectively freeing more than 3 million enslaved persons.   He’s also remembered for his many famous quotes.  I think one of my favorite quotes is:

"If you once forfeit the confidence of your fellow citizens, you can never regain their respect and esteem. It is true that you may fool all of the people some of the time; you can even fool some of the people all of the time; but you can't fool all of the people all of the time."
