Although one hundred and fifty years has passed since the departure of one of the greatest Presidents in modern history, the memory of Abraham Lincoln the sixteenth President of the United States, and the champion of equality that crowned Jefferson's declaration of independence, has settled in human memory, as the deeds of great men outlives them.
The values that the United States still carries in its conscience were derived from this great leader, who dedicated his life to serve the new America that was introduced to the world with the culture based on justice and virtue. Thus throughout his service in syndicates, his party, the military, or in parliament, he was dedicated to advance freedom and end slavery. Thus Lincoln's memory became immortal by championing freedom and pioneering understanding that life is a gift from The Almighty to all humanity to prosper the earth and realize the human dream of a decent life, equal opportunities, dignity, and respect, regardless of color, race, gender or faith.
Freedom releases the soul without infringing the right of freedom for others, Abraham Lincoln was a free man, who gave freedom and released the souls of others to take part in building human history.
As he is remembered today, we remember how he awakened the human conscience and took America to its fundamental values and human civilization, which made his memory settle in the conscience of nations that seek their freedom and dignity.
We share with the people of the United States the one hundred and fifty years anniversary since the departure of this great leader, and recall his values and message to humanity, and pray to The Almighty to spare this world wars and plights and to give us the compassion and tolerance to enjoy freedom, dignity and hope.
