Gettysburg Address

This morning while I was driving the kids to school, one of my nephews (who is in our carpool) was practicing "The Gettysburg Address" in preparation for reciting it in class.

I have heard/read it a number of times, and yet for some reason I felt like I was hearing it for the first time. It touched me profoundly, and I was really choked up. If you aren't familiar with it, or haven't read it for a while, please do.
