Have you ever risked it all?

From “Lincoln 365,” by Arnold Kunst:
March 8
In July of 1862, two months before Lincoln made public his momentous decision to issue an Emancipation Proclamation, Lyman Trumbull of Illinois, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, admitted bluntly, ‘Our people want nothing to do with the Negro.’

'If you go at life with both patience and a cool head under pressure there will never be a storm so perfect that you can't ride it out.'
- Arnold Kunst
