A Lesson From The Lincoln Memorial

A thought for this inauguration day  — Have you ever studied Abraham Lincoln’s pose at the Lincoln Memorial?  Specifically, notice his hands.  His left hand is a tightly clinched fist, while the right hand is resting relaxed on the chair arm.  This suggests there are two equal components of American leadership — strength and compassion.

I didn’t realize this myself until I read about it in the Parade Sunday newspaper supplement of Jan 15, 2017.

Have a nice day!
