There has been a build up of Russian troops towards the agreed ceasefire line in Ukraine, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg claimed on Friday.

Dawning of the Day by Mary Fahl (former lead singer of October Project)

  • "...Forgive me love, I'm going now

    And do not be afraid
    And please don't grieve when I am gone
    Abide in what remains
    'til the shadows end and we meet again

    We shall meet again
    On the dawning of the day...

Anniversary today of the Gettysburg Address

"The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here.
It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced.
It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."
