With Charity For All

Flag on Bridge


With malice toward none;
with charity for all;
with firmness in the right,
as God gives us to see the right,
let us strive to finish the work we are in;
to bind up the nation's wounds;
to care for him who shall have borne the battle...
to do all which may achieve and cherish
a just and lasting peace,
among ourselves, and with all nations.


~Abraham Lincoln, as quoted in April 1865 by Jay Winik

That there happens to be the driveway to the most expensive property on the market in the state of Oregon and the view from the dock where we spent Memorial Day fishing and swimming (well, the boys fished and swam... I took pictures :)).
