Lincoln Handwriting Race

This undated photo provided by the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in Springfield, Ill., shows what historical experts say is Abraham Lincoln's handwriting they’ve found inside a tattered book justifying racism that he may have read to better understand his opponents' thinking on slavery. "Types of Mankind" was published in 1854 and circulated for decades by the Vespasian Warner Public Library in Clinton. Director Joan Rhoades brought the 700-page book to the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in May to determine whether an inscription inside was made by the former president who worked to free the country's slaves through the Emancipation Proclamation.

Sure, spoken words are a kind gesture, but it’s the written words that we can read and remember, over and over again. Someone surprised you with coffee and made your day? Write it down. It’s an old friend’s birthday? Mail them a letter. You love your friend just because? Let them know and send a short note. Nothing screams “I’m thankful” more than a handwritten note.
