President Barack Obama loves to quote the lyrical closing lines of Abraham Lincoln 's First Inaugural Address, calling on "the better angels of our nature " to overcome partisan hatreds and political divisions.
Obama cited those words in his own inaugural proclamation and rested his hand on Lincoln 's Bible when he took the oath of office. He has come back to those angels again and again ever since. Obama, it seems, sees better angels just about everywhere. Even as he traveled in India this week he talked about his efforts to live up to the example of Mahatma GandhiMartin Luther King Jr.
But in light of today's real-world politicsObama should think a little harder about the context in which Lincoln summoned those better angels on March 4, Led by South Carolina now home to Sen. Jim DeMintseven of 33 states had already seceded from the Union to form the Confederacy at that point. Lincoln had an ally then of a kind that Obama could use now. Lincoln's old rival from Illinois, Stephen Douglaswhose party had been split by the fire-eaters and whom Lincoln defeated at the polls, became a wise and vital friend.
In the months between the inauguration and Douglas's early death in Junethe "little giant," as he was known, spent many long hours talking to Lincoln about how best to preserve the Union — and compromise wasn't part of the picture. What both of those great politicians understood by then was that there may be better angels in the nature of some people, but there are others who are willing to weaken, even destroy a nation to serve their own self-righteous self-interestand they will do it in the name of the Constitution.
If Obama hasn't learned that yet, perhaps it's time he did. What is the question now placed before society with the glib assurance which to me is most astonishing? That question is this: Is man an ape or an angel?
I, my lord, I am on the side of the angels. I repudiate with indignation and abhorrence those new fangled theories.
Benjamin Disraelispeech at Oxford Diocesan Conference. Austin DobsonA Fairy Tale. Heaventoo, was very near to them in those days. God 's direct agency was to be seen in the thunder and the rainbowthe whirlwind and the lightning. To the believerclouds of angels and confessors, and martyrs, armies of the sainted and the saved, were ever stooping over their struggling brethren upon earthraising, encouraging, and supporting them.
Let old Timotheus yield the prize Or both divide the crown; He rais'd a mortal to the skies She drew an angel down. That is all an angel is: And so because the soul may know everythingit is never at rest until it comes to the original ideain which all things are one. And there it comes to rest in God. Not for nothing did God give the keys into St.
Peter 's keeping, for Peter stands for knowledgeand knowledge is the key that unlocks the doorpresses forward and breaks in, to discover God as he is. The German Mystics, p. The authorities teach that next to the first emanation, which is the Son coming out of the Father, the angels are most like God. And it may well be true, for the soul at its highest is formed like God, but an angel gives a closer idea of Him.
For this reason the angel was sent to the soul, so that the soul might be re-formed by it, to be the divine idea by which it was first conceived. Knowledge comes through likeness. The golden moments in the stream of life rush past us and we see nothing but sand; the angels come to visit us, and we only know them when they are gone.
In old days there were angels who came and took men by the hand and led them away from the city of destruction. I did think that, given my progression, it made sense to expect that I would reach that level. It worked out well for me.
Do you have plans to turn TheTrackQueen into a brand? I do have plans for my brand. When I have a big enough fanbase, I definitely intend to release merchandise.
That was so cheesy. That being said, can you sing? Like, later in life. I'm active on social media. I don't really follow a lot of people on my social media, mostly because a lot of people on social media are very young. I've also always set boundaries. Social media is social, but I don't follow a lot of people because there are a lot of things I'd rather not see. I do interact with a lot of other athletes, simply because I am an athlete. I'm not on Twitter a lot.
If I am on Twitter I just scroll. I used to be very dedicated to Snapchat. I'm mostly on Instagram right now. That's my favorite social media. I only follow like people on there. Very rarely do I follow back, and it's terrible. But I was doing the followback thing for a while. The problem is, people just post anything on there, and I need to stay focused.
I've been doing Instagram Live pretty frequently. It gives people a perspective of me they don't see unless they're with me, and I get a lot of good feedback from it. I get encouraged to start my own YouTube channel, because the stories I tell are funny.We Will Meet Again - Oleta Adams
I don't think they're funny. I think you're funny by accident because you get right to the point. Yeah, it's a different side of me than people expect. There's a lot of things that people take for granted when talking to athletes.
A lot of people ask things you can find on the internet. I encourage people to ask personal questions, about things outside of athletics. One of the favorite questions I was asked was about my favorite meal to cook. I actually want to invest in a restaurant.
Life Keeps Moving On Lyrics
I love things like this. My mom always makes fun of me because I can't make simple meals. I can't make Kool Aid. I can't get the right ratio of water and sugar. I don't know why, but I just can't do it. So you can train seven to eight hours per day, but you can't put Kool Aid powder and sugar in water?
Yeah, I don't know why. It's always too watery, or too sugary. That should be your first YouTube video. The Kool Aid Struggle Chronicles. Let my mom tell it, I just don't have the ability to do it. I thought about making a YouTube channel. Maybe I'll do it this year.
How would you describe the lifestyle of a professional athlete? Is it as cool as it seems? Being a professional athlete is hard and incredibly time consuming. We are a really big family. We compete against each other, but we have such a feeling of closeness within the sport that we can respect each other for what we do on the track and support each other off the track. Truly amazing, and well deserved.
Have you ever wanted to quit, or not train as hard as you do? Being an athlete in general is mentally exhausting and physically exhausting. All you want to do is turn your phone off, close the door, and escape.
You reach that level of defeat. You might not have a good race. My grandma passed away inand she was the one who pushed me to become an athlete and dream of becoming an Olympian. At my lowest point, I was in my closet and crying because she was no longer in my life.
Despite that, and my injuries, I still picked myself up and went to practice, because I know how I wanted my life to be and what I wanted to do.
I have a couple. My favorite song is "" by Anita Baker. My grandma shared that song with me. Anita Baker has to be my aunt, I swear she was part of my family tree at some point. What are the biggest distractions you consistently face as you push yourself to stay focused? Track and field is a 24 hour a day job. You get out of it whatever you put inside of it. I get a bit jealous. I like entertaining and having fun with my friends. You just want to tell them to shut up.
How do you tune out the distractions? I make it known that I have to train, and I need that time. Over the years, I've lost some friends because I don't put my friends before what I want to do - my training.
It's sad, but necessary. The friends that I do have get it. So they expect me to train, eat, and rest.
After I've done that, then maybe we can meet up. I surround myself with people who understand what I'm doing and respect what I'm trying to do. My friends are still encouraging and supportive. I constantly remind myself that I'm still young, and there are a lot more things that I want to accomplish. Being an Olympic bronze medalist is fantastic, but now I want to be a gold medalist and break the world record. Now I want to go to cities I've never been to and go to track meets that are exclusive to certain people.
There are always more things to accomplish. Maybe in after Tokyo, I'll take up a new event, like the Not saying that I will, but there are options. I've discussed it a lot with my coach.
My Nana encouraged me to start running track.
