Mindful Monday

"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, stretching from every battle-field, and patriot grave, to every living heart and hearth-stone, all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature."
-Abraham Lincoln, inaugural address

(one of my all-time favorite quotes)

Is this quote in light of what happened in Tucson? It seems to fit quite well.

Yes. I'm pretty upset by the shooting. Hoping it's not indicative of worse things to come.
