Lincoln - A Remarkable Film About An Incredible Man

Last night I went to see Steven Spielberg's 'Lincoln' starring Daniel Day Lewis, who I believe is the best actor ever to appear in film.   As expected, Mr. Spielberg's storyline, drawn from the extraordinary book publication about President Lincoln written by Doris Kearns Goodwin and the high-octane screenplay of Tony Kuschner (I once was a shareholder in one of Tony's production companies), portrayed a man so courageous, so benevolant, so intelligent, and so steeped in morals, that his life will forever change the course of the human race.

I was inspired.  I am inspired.

Clearly, Abraham Lincoln faced great challenges during his presidency, and Lewis delievers these challenges perfectly in Mr. Spielberg's brilliant film.

In these challenges, Lincoln never waivered.  He followed the course.  He believed.  And he let his faith in his belief guide him to do what was right.

As an advocate fighting to protect children from internatinal abduction and human trafficking, there are times when it appears the wall we try to push back does not move.

I really appreciated seeing 'Lincoln' last night.

Bravo! Bravo! Bravo!

Do yourself a favor, seriously: go and see Lincoln.  It very well might make you ask yourself this question:  How can I be a better person?
