Abraham Lincoln

Biography of Abraham Lincon
 
Image result for abraham lincoln presiden amerikA 

“With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation’s wounds…. “
– Abraham Lincoln
Abraham Lincoln was born Feb 12, 1809, in Hardin Country, Kentucky. His family upbringing was modest; his parents from Virginia were neither wealthy or well known. At an early age, the young Abraham lost his mother and his father moved away to Indiana. Abraham had to work hard splitting logs and other manual labour. But, he also had a thirst for knowledge and worked very hard to excel in his studies. This led him to become trained as a lawyer. He spent  eight years working on the Illinois court circuit; his ambition, drive and capacity for hard work were evident to all around him. He also had a good sense of humour and was depreciating about his looks.
“If I were two-faced, would I be wearing this one?”
He married Mary Todd and had four children, although three died before reaching maturity.
As a lawyer, Abraham developed a great capacity for quick thinking and oratory. His interest in public issues encouraged him to stand for public office. In 1854 he was elected to the House of Representatives and he tried to gain nomination for the Senate in 1858. Although he lost this election, his debating skills caused him to become well known within the Republican party. In particular, during this campaign he gave one of his best remembered speeches.
A house divided against itself cannot stand. I believe this government cannot endure, permanently, half slave and half free. I do not expect the Union to be dissolved — I do not expect the house to fall — but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing or all the other. Either the opponents of slavery will arrest the further spread of it, and place it where the public mind shall rest in the belief that it is in the course of ultimate extinction; or its advocates will push it forward, till it shall become lawful in all the States, old as well as new — North as well as South (House Divided)
In this House divided speech, Lincoln gave a prophetic utterance to the potential for slavery to divide the nation.
The reputation he gained on the campaign trail caused him to be elected as Republican nominee for President in 1860.
The election of Lincoln as President in 1861, sparked the South to succeed from the North. Southern independence sentiment had been growing for many years and the election of a president opposed to slavery was the final straw. However, Lincoln resolutely opposed the breakaway of the South and so this led to the American civil war. The civil war was much more costly than many people anticipated and at times Lincoln appeared to be losing the support of the general population. But, he managed to keep the Republican party together, stifling dissent by promoting the various Republican factions into the cabinet. Lincoln oversaw many of the military aspects of the war and promoted the general Ulysses S Grant to oversee the northern forces.
Initially the war was primarily about succession and the survival of the Union, but as the war progressed Lincoln increasingly made the issue of ending slavery paramount. To Lincoln, slavery was fundamentally wrong.
“Whenever I hear anyone arguing for slavery, I feel a strong impulse to see it tried on him personally.”
On January 1, 1863, Lincoln issued his memorable Emancipation Proclamation that declared the freedom of slaves within the Confederacy.
“… all persons held as slaves within any State or designated part of a State, the people whereof shall then be in rebellion against the United States, shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free; and the Executive Government of the United States, including the military and naval authority thereof, will recognize and maintain the freedom of such persons,…” (Emancipation Proclamation)
Eventually, after four years of attrition, the Federal forces secured the surrender of the defeated south. Lincoln had saved the union and also brought to head the end of slavery.
Dedicating the ceremony at Gettysburg on November 19, 1863, Lincoln declared:
“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.”
Lincoln was tragically assassinated by John Wilkes Booth, an actor on, April 14, 1865. He is widely regarded as one of America’s most influential and important presidents. As well as saving the union, Lincoln was viewed as embodying the ideals of honesty and integrity.
Abraham Lincoln came from humble beginnings. He was born in a single-room log cabin in Hardin County, Kentucky. His parents were Thomas and Nancy Hanks Lincoln. His father lost everything when Abraham was young and they had to move to Perry County, Indiana where they struggled to get by. When he was just nine years old, his mother died and his sister Sarah took care of him until his father remarried. Portrait of Abe Lincoln Abraham Lincoln by George Peter Alexander Healy Abraham had very little formal education, but had a strong interest in books and learning. Most of what he learned was self-educated and from books he borrowed. His family later moved to Illinois where Lincoln would set out on his own. As a young man, Lincoln worked a variety of jobs including shopkeeper, surveyor, and postmaster. For a time, he even split firewood with an axe for a living. He soon moved into politics and won a seat in the Illinois Legislature when he was 25.

Question of New Zealand

New Zealand 

I want to tell you about my favorite place. Actually, i have never been to New Zealand before. But when i saw it on the television it was very interesting. I hope someday i will go there.

     New Zealand is a nation of just over 4.5 million people. New Zealand is near Australia Island. New Zealand is made up of two major land masses (North Island and South Island) and a number of smaller island including Stewaer Island located in the southwestern Pacific Ocean. The capital city of New Zealand is Wellington. The biggest city in New Zealand is Auckland.

If i could go there i want to visit. 
     First, Queenstown, New Zealand. Queenstown, New Zealand is located on the southwest side of the South Island. Queenstown has a well deserved reputation as the adventure capital of New Zealand. During the winter and spring months (June to October), Quenstown is known for world-class skiing. There's plenty to in in Queenstown, adventure activities such as bungee jumping, skydiving, jet boating, and river rafting. It is a best place from dizzying heights and at breathtaking speeds that make me want to go there. 
     Second, Bay of Island is one of the best place to go in New Zealand for fishing, sailing and other water sports. The gorgeous region is made up of 144 island between Cape Brett and the Purerua Pennsula. There, i want to try scuba diving to explore the underwater world, and get to view dolphins and whales from the boat and swim with the dolphins if conditions. Then, i want to go to Hole in the Rock, that is an opening in a rock formation that we can sail through when the tide is right.  
     Third, The Hobbiton Movie Set. The Hobbiton Movie Set in Matamata, New Zealand. It is a scene miniature, which will make you fell like you've just stepped into the world of J.R.R Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy and "The Hobbit" films and books. The story was, Peter Jackson come across the farm while conducting an aerial search of the North Island. When he saw the area, he thought it was the perfect location for Hobbiton, one of the places in the Shire where Hobbits lived. They began site construction in 1999, and the set rebuilt in 2011. And the place called Green Dragon Inn, which featured in the Lord of the Rings trilogy as the local meeting places for the Hobbition and by water resident, where hobbits would gather to drink, enjoy a meal, and discuss what was happening in the Shire.
     Fourth, Milford Sound, New Zealand. Milford Sound, New Zealand is one of "eight wonder of the world". It was formed by glaciers during the ice age, the landscape around Milford Sound still bears evidence of it's creation in the form of epic scenery, Cliffs rise from fjords crowned by mountains and waterfalls. Take a sightseeing cruise on the fjord to see waterfalls and wildlife such as dolphins and penguins. Or navigate the waters under own steam on a kayaking tour. There not only experienced the water from the surface, but we can go underneath, we can use underwater observatory that the visitors can go more that 30 feet deep(while staying dry) and get 360 degrees of the underwater environment. 
     Fifth, Christchurch, New Zealand. Christchurch has made a true comeback from despite being rocked by earthquakes in 2010 until 2011. In there we can use tram to enjoy the journey from Cathedral Junction through Cathedral Square before passing the Avon River where there is a attraction called punting on the Avon, START Mall and High Street, Centerbury Museum, Hagley Park, Victoria Square and New Regent Street. Things that i really want to do is to see the new and the old Christchurch from above with a journey in the gondola. 

     That are the five place i want to go when i visit New Zealand, but actually there are lots of interesting place that i want to visit. I want to go to New Zealand because i like the nature and the sightseeing around the city. 

That's all i want to tell you. I look forward if you want tell me more about New Zealand. Thank you for reading :).

My Unforgettable Moment

Hello everybody, now i want to tell you about my unforgettable moment.

My unforgettable moment was in 2012, when i went to Singapore. In July 2012, me and my brother went to Singapore without my parents. At that time, my brothers at 8th grade junior high school and 9th grade junior high school and me still at 5th grade elementry school. In Singapore i have a uncle, he is my mother's brother. My uncle name is Ucok and he has a wife called Lasma. They live in Choa Chu Kang. Actually, my parents couldn't joined me and my brothers because it was at school holiday when my parents couldn't took a vacation at that time.

I had a holiday in Singapore for 1 week, it was very fun. Although, i already gone to Singapore 4 times but it was the best time for me. Maybe because i had the holiday without my parents hehehe.
Now i want to tell you why it was my unforgettable moment for me.

     The first day, we departed from Husein Sastranegara Bandung at 1 pm and we arrived in Changi International Airport Singapore at 3.45 pm because we had time difference with Singapore 1 hour. After we arrived, we went to the imigration. After that, we took our luggage and we had to wait because my uncle picked me up at 5.30 pm because my uncle finished the worked at 5 pm. But at the airport, my brothers and i enjoyed it. We went around the airport because the airport have a lot of fasilities like zoo, shopping store, play ground, etc. We also saw the plane take off and landed, there were a lot of plane, because Changi airpot was one of the busiest airport in the world. At 5.30 pm finally my uncle and my aunt picked us up. We didn't sightseing the city because it was already to dark and to late. So we went home, took a shower, had a dinner , watched tv, and at 11 pm we slept.

     At the second day, we woke up at 5.30 am. We cleaned the house before we went out home. That day we had a plan to Marina Bay Sands  for the first time. Because it was built on 2010, so it was the first time i been there. So we went out from home 7 am and we went to Marina Bay Sands with my uncle by car. In the Marina Bay Sands we went to the mall in the mall there were a lot of branded stores and we went to the casino but of course me and my brother didn't entry because we still below age. After went to the mall, me and my brother went to the hotel it was very cool
and we went to the top of the hotel. Then we went to the Gardens by the bay, there were many kind of plants. The plants were from many country, and there plants that formed like animal. I think it was the best for sightseing. After we went to Gardens by the bay, my brother went back home with MRT. MRT was underground train.

     At the third day, me and my brother went to Merlion park. We went there with MRT, in there we took a picture and we went to Esplanade. In the daylight, we went to the suntec city for lunch. The foods we ate were Laksa, and Laksa were the original food from Singapore. It was delicious food, i like the food but it quite hot. After lunch, we went around the Suntec city and we went to Orchad Road the best place for shopping, after shopping we went back home. 

     At the fourth day, we went to Universal Studio. My uncle drove us to Harbour front and we took MRT to Sentosa Island. In the Universal Studio we very enjoyed it, because in the morning it still quiet. We went to Sci-fi City, in there we played roller coster and that place was the place for me. We went to Ancient Eygp it was roller coaster ride but there were stories along the journey, Lost world the place that in Indonesia called "Arung Jeram", Far-Far Away were we watched 4D Sherk movie, Madagascar were we go around with a boat and see Madagascar character, Hollywood were the place we see a attraction and if we sit in the front row we will get wet, and the last was Transformer where we watch 4D movie in the car and it was the place that i like too. We went back home at 7.00 pm, we went back to Harbour Front and my uncle picked us up there.

     At the fifth day, we went around the city by LRT, LRT were smaller and the track were shorter than MRT. After that, we went to Jurong East for shopping and we went to Bugis Street for buying some souvenirs to Singapore.

     At the sixth day, my brother, my uncle, my aunt, and i went to Johor, Malaysia with car. In there we bought some seasoning from Malayasia and in Malaysia the price were cheaper than Singapore. We went shopping because the price was cheap. In Johor we ate Nasi Briyani, the food was delicous because the seasoning. The best time in Johor was that we ate durian all we eat just for 10 ringgit. After that we come back to Singapore and my brother and i packed for the next day because we want to come back to Indonesia.

     And the last day, in the morning we went to the airport at 10.00 am amd we arrived at 11.00 am. My brother and i went for check in and we went to the imigration. Because our plane take of at 1.35 pm, so we ate lunch that we brought. At 1.00 pm we went into the plane, then at 1.35 pm we finally take off. At 2.15 pm in Indonesia's time we arrived in Husein Sastranegara Bandung.

It was the best holiday for me and the unforgettable moment. How about you?
Thank you for reading my blog.
