Taking New Paths

Raeanne Rider (’16) was born exactly 129 years after President Lincoln uttered perhaps the grandest sentence in U.S. history:

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, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and orphan, to do all which may achieve a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.

The fact that Rider knows Lincoln’s second inaugural address so well tells you something about her. It’s also telling that on her 21st birthday, Rider eschewed the typical bar crawl to stand just yards from where Lincoln spoke, and attend a discussion of the address. “It was a good birthday,” she said.
