The Whole Package

My friends and I visited the Big Tree Grove of Calveras County (California) this past July.  It was a quite a treat to see the immense sequoias, especially the Abraham Lincoln, which is pictured here.  Whenever I’m feeling inadequate in my life, I think of Lincoln, someone who had the balls to lead the country through its worst trials and tribulations.  Sure enough, he had personal issues, such as bouts with depression and he suspended civil liberties during the War, but you have to look at the whole package.
