Fondly remembering a Great One

Friends,

Today is President Abraham Lincoln's bicentennial. Young India is delighted to share its best wishes with all Americans and everyone else who believes in sustaining a progressive democracy. President Lincoln, while in the midst of upheaval, never truly lost his view of the future and brilliantly waged a battle that brought America back from a moral abyss. His leadership and dedication to the democratic ideal, which to him was the same as the ideal of human equality, still inspires us today. His life, his writings and his martyrdom will forever be with us in all those moments of doubt when the dark shadow of the present blinds us to the future. Because not only did Lincoln pierce through the darkness of the present he did so to ensure the future was well lit for generations to come.

It is fitting that on this day the President who signed the Emancipation Proclamation is remembered by the first African American President in history - Barack Obama. America has given the 16th President a memorable gift.

Peace.
