EDITORIAL:

During this month of February, we are aware of the birthday anniversary of two great men in our national history. These two men we have all heard about and have come to love and respect and attribute many opportunities and liberties that we now enjoy to them.

George Washington was born on February 22, 1732 in what is now Wakefield, Virginia. He has been honored and revered for about 227 years. We know a great deal about him because records were kept and histories were written. In fact he, himself wrote the story of his life. It is because of the information people in his day were able to write down and file away that we know so much about him today.

Abraham Lincoln likewise was born during the month of February. His birthday falls on February 12, ?? each year. Although Lincoln came from an entirely different background as George Washington, we honor him none the less. Lincoln was born in a log cabin in 1809, in Hardin Co., Kentucky. The cabin was made from reigh logs, and was a floorless, with just the bare necessities. He is most remembered for his undying efforts to free the slaves, which was the crisis of his day.

George Washington and Abraham Lincoln are names we will never forget. If there had been no records kept, or no histories written how much would we know about these two very important men in nation’s history!

Likewise, it is our duty and obligation to not only keep records, but to write histories, our own, those of our parents and ancestors, and encourage our children to take an active interest in doing so too. This alone is a job if we ourselves are uninterested. We must try to become interested and active.

Do you fine people realize just how much work our historian, Luella Jones Downard, has to do to prepare these wonderful histories for us every three months? Let us all do our part. She needs it.
