Today Barack Obama has chosen to be sworn into office on Abraham Lincoln's bible. That is a picture of that bible to the left. Whether Mr. Obama has made that choice because the Obamas don't own a family bible, which most presidents choose to be sworn in on, or for other reasons I do not know. But I do know that Lincoln's word remain as true today as when he spoke them: "I believe the Bible is the best gift God has given to man . . . But for this Book, we could not know right from wrong . . . Take all you can of this Book upon reason, and the balance on faith,and you will live and die a happier man.”

-Abraham Lincoln

May God bless the new administration and the United States of America.
