It’s time to appeal to our Better Angels

by Jan Schroder
Lincoln's inauguration

Traditionally around 4th of July, I quote Thomas Jefferson in this space. Given our nation’s hardening polarization, I thought it more appropriate this year to quote Abraham Lincoln.

A recent USA Today article on Better Angels sparked me to join and volunteer as a moderator. As Lincoln said:

“We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory … will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.”
