If you know me, then you are keenly aware that Abraham Lincoln is a hero of mine and my favorite US president.
My personal passion for all things Abe began during a family trip to Springfield, Illinois when I was 8 years old. I was immediately awed by him and the experience.
Seeing and touching the very things that Lincoln had seen and touched in his day was life changing.
Even though Lincoln had been gone for more than 100 years, I felt transported back to the 1840’s, defying any true understanding for an eight-year old.
Fast forward 35 years and that brings us to the recently opened, sweeing epic, Lincoln. First, if you have not had a chance to see it… well, stop reading this article, put down the paper and proceed immediately to the closest theatre. I promise, Lincoln will inspire you.
