Young Living Nine Score And Seven Years Ago The Gettysburg Address is 100 years old this week. I can recite it in my sleep the first paragraph, at least and so can you. That's just the trouble. The Gettysburg Address has become a string of words we chant, too often without thinking what they mean What a shame If ever it Joins the company of Richard Stans (Know that Joke aKnnf h I tn ? "Who is Richard Stans?" the schoolboy asked his mother. "He must be very important, because every morning we pledge allegiance to the flag and to the republic, for Richard Stans.") There's a Joke about the Gettysburg Address too "That's where to write to Mamie and Ike." But it seems to me that this year, if ever there was one, when-we should all reread the ottvsbure Address without a smile. We should read it seriously, not for its well-known rhythm and grace but for its content. The Gettysburg Address, 100 years old, is as topical as tomorrow's paper. Lincoln said, it". 18G3. "It is for us, the living, rather to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far o nobly advanced." I wonder how he'd feel If he knew that the work is still unfinished? Our time has seen "noble advance," but in 1963 we can hardly pretend that "the cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion" has gone forward with (in the language of the Supreme Court's 1955 order on school desegregation) "all deliberate speed." Five years before he delivered his two minute speech at Gettysburg, Lincoln said, "As I would not be a slave, so I would not be a master. This ex-resses my idea of democracy." What better motto for a modern youth who wants to help bring this nation the "new birth of freesom" Lincoln called for? I think that if you will go out of your way to support the belief that "all men are created equal" you will have an additional reward, one that money cannot buy, a kind of happiness that can come from self-respect alone.

There is an ancient re cord (from the 13th century) of a pike that lived 267 years. Carps attain 150 years, as an example, and tortoises often live to 200 years. Parrots are known to live 100 years, crows to 70, geese to 80, and eagles to 110, while falcons are known to have lived to an age of 160. and storks to 100 years Horses rarely reach 50, camels up to 40, cattle to 30, dogs 17 years, cats 15 years, ana sneep to 1 years, mere are aumen tlcated records of men who have lived In times of record ed history (other than the bible) who reached the ages of 165, 152. 146, etc. Many more people than Is generally believed reach 100 years of age.
