Happy Birthday Mr. Lincoln!

35458401700_29e1af9dea_bWhen Abraham Lincoln was upset with someone, he would write a “hot letter” and put it aside, unsigned.  He would pour out his anger into the letter – but not send it.  By acknowledging his anger on paper, he was able to then step back and process the situation.  It also helped that the tools to write a letter were not always at his finger tips (a pen, ink and paper or a secretary).  Today, with social media always at our finger tips, we are far to quick to practice the same exercise via the keyboard, but are far too hasty in posting our thoughts.  I think the world would be a better place if we all just took a pause before clicking send.  Happy Birthday Mr. Lincoln!
