what would abraham lincoln do

November 1, 2013

we teach our kids a lot of things these days.  things like how to text and walk at the same time.  or trigonometry.  and who abraham lincoln, paul revere and heath ledger were.  these are all important things.

i would also argue that personal responsibility is a pretty big thing.  and i fear it’s something we don’t value, teach or reward in society today.  it’s not sexy picking your shoes off the floor and placing them in the closet where they belong.  it’s not headline news when you turn in your work on time without having to be hounded.  it’s just life.  and scrubbing toilets, not taking up two parking spots at the mall and rsvp’ing to fabulous party invitations is just expected of you.  just do what you’re supposed to do.  because abraham lincoln should did.  and look what it got him.

a really funny hat.  and the best worst job in town.
