Malice Toward None . . . Charity For All

What are we teaching our children? Would that the words of Abraham Lincoln in his 1863 2nd Inaugural Address guide us today:

With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation’s wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations. Abraham Lincoln, 1863 Inaugural Address.
