Honest Abe.

So I went to the movies once again today. Today technically being yesterday, seeing how it’s 1:15 a.m. now.

This time I saw the movie Lincoln. Which is a very detailed depiction of President Abraham Lincoln’s second term in office. It focused mainly on what Lincoln focused basically his whole time in office on.

For those of you who aren’t from the United States of America and don’t know our history, or any of you Americans who have lived in a cave your entire life. Lincoln ended slavery in the United States with the Civil War, the Emancipation Proclamation and the 13th Amendment.

The movie spends most of its time discussing the importance of equality and the effort by Lincoln and company to get the 13th amendment passed by the House of Representatives.

The actor, Daniel Day-Lewis, who played Lincoln is the movie was incredible. He looked almost identical to the real Honest Abe and delivered a definite actor of the year performance.

I found it quite amazing how in depth Steven Spielberg went to make everything so realistic and very accurate to actual happenings. The dialogue was very witty and extremely impactful.

I can’t even begin to fathom how truly inspiring Lincoln was in person. I was inspired by the movie and I’ve never had to live in times similar to those.

Movies like that make me think how crazy things have gotten in our world and how much has changed. People say the world is ending now-a-days. What do those people think people back then thought? Something to ponder…
