"I will only say that to the salvation of this Union there needs but one single thing - the hearts of the people like yours. When the people rise in masses in behalf of the Union and the liberties of their country, truly may it be said, 'The gates of hell shall not prevail against them.'" Abraham Lincoln, Reply to Governor Oliver P. Morton at Indianapolis, Indiana (February 11, 1861)
Lincoln's words over a 140 years ago still ring true today. If we are to preserve our liberties as a free people, in the end it will be hearts of the people that will save it - and nothing can stop it. On the other hand, without those hearts, our demise is inevitable. What side will your heart take?
