Veteran's Day

To Preserve the Jewel of Liberty

It seemed odd to find a statue of Abraham Lincoln while strolling through Edinburgh but there he was. At the base of the monument are his words: To preserve the jewel of liberty in the framework of freedom. The monument is in honor of Scottish-American soldiers. For the naysayers remember that we can honor the soldiers who fell in war even if we do not necessarily honor the particular war they fell in. On a lighter note, anyone going to see the Lincoln movie when it opens? Here are a few more photos of the same location.

I rarely rush to see movies upon their release, and then only spend the extra dollars to see those films that need the sweeping canvas of the big screen to really help tell the tale (such as action flicks or maybe some documentaries).
