Here to Make Friends

I am blessed. I hope you are as well!
I have great friends. I have quite a few of them. They make life enjoyable, interesting, fruitful, stimulating. And they, in some ways, "make me" as well.

I like this sentiment. I am here to make friends. Yes I am and so are you. Friends, partners, colleagues, collaborators, team-members, peers… 

Abraham Lincoln on Mercy and Friendship

I have read the most about Roosevelt, Lincoln is next and Washington will get my attention next year.

Here are two quotes from Lincoln.
