Abraham Lincoln spent his whole life clearing a path for others.
As a boy he helped his father clear a trail through the woods.
As a young attorney he guided farmers, businessmen, and inventors through the courts.
As President of the United States, he passed laws that made life easier for all Americans.
On my bulletin board I have a slip of paper with this quote: "Every kind word makes me stronger, Every kind deed sets me free." I don't know who said it, but I believe that even the smallest act of kindness can clear a path to a more peaceful world.
To celebrate the book-birthday of Lincoln Clears a Path (available January 19th) I've created the Clear a Path Project for adults and children. Join me and others as we find creative ways to help friends, family, neighbors and anyone in need.
