Return Of Icons - Lincoln's Emancipation

July 29, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

This is the latest edition in the on going Return Of Icons series.

In this image, we see Abraham Lincoln lying in repose with his most meaningful work, 

"The Emancipation Proclamation".  This work's importance can never be underestimated or denied. 

It is the "Truth" that most of us take for granted today.  It is the "Truth" that some people of ignorance still deny today.

It is the "Truth" that took Abraham Lincoln to an early grave.

I honor and respect this "Truth" and I honor Lincoln's courage and wisdom.  He was a true human being.
