Thursday is a very special day. It is a day that should be special to everyone, but it is of special note this year.
Thursday is the 200th anniversary of the birth of our 16th president, Abraham Lincoln.
To say he is one of our best presidents is an understatement. He and George Washington stand alone.
The son of a Kentucky frontiersman, Lincoln had to struggle for a living and for learning.
He was born Feb. 12, 1809, in Hardin County, Kentucky. His parents were both born in Virginia of undistinguished families.
His mother died when he was 10.
