30th Birthday – Lincoln’s birthday.
I am a bit disappointed that the countdown started earlier, because I was expecting it to end earlier.
I mean, it would have been nice if it did!
Harry’s birthday is a little more boring, and is only 30 years old.
This one is a bit more exciting because it has a birthday that has happened 30 years earlier, but only by one year!
And, it’s not like there are other birthday parties to celebrate either!
I guess you can’t really complain about the length of time it takes to get there, right?
I am not the most patient person, and I have been very impatient for some time now, so I have no idea what will happen in the coming days.
I suppose we should start with a quick reminder that, for a certain amount of time, it is completely impossible to die.
That includes being crushed under a bus or being struck by lightning.
I guess that should be enough to motivate you to start looking forward to this birthday.
Happy birthday, Harry.

I was so excited to celebrate my birthday on January 2, 2019.
My wife and I were planning to spend the night in our new apartment (and maybe a little sleep over on the weekend), and then we would get back to our office.
We were going to celebrate the day with a little surprise, so we decided to celebrate with some classic movie quotes and trivia.
But we never did actually get to do that, so here are my favorite quotes from movies about Lincoln and his birthdays.
Quotes to Enjoy Quote: “It’s always a shame to be born without a father.”
– Harry S. Truman (1936) Quotes to enjoy Quote: I never wanted to be the first president, but I was born in the year that my father died.
Quotes from movies on Lincoln: “I want you to think of me as your father.
I’m not really the first, but my father was the one who first came to America.”
– Lincoln: The Last Days of the Union (1964) “It is the great responsibility of every father to raise his children to be as good as his own.”
– President Franklin D. Roosevelt (1940) “The idea of a child born of a man is something that is very dear to my heart.”
– Martin Luther King, Jr. (1946) Quotes from films on Lincoln and Birthdays: “It’s never too early to ask the question, why not?”
– Lincoln (1942) This was the quote I was most excited to hear.
I was sure I was going to have to tell my son that he was born on a Saturday night, because he was going into kindergarten right after I had my first child.
I didn’t want him to have the impression that he and I weren’t supposed to be together.
I also wasn’t going to be able to go to church on a Sunday because he’d have to be home by midnight.
But I did have to ask him.
“Because you’re the president of the United States.”
– James Madison (1804-1828) Here’s another quote that was a bit of a surprise.
I thought I was the only one who hadn’t heard it before.
I only learned it after I received a call from my son’s mom, asking me to take a look at the list.
This is a quote that I actually thought I would hear at birth, but it turned out to be one of the first I heard.
I told him I had a birthday coming up, but didn’t realize it was so special until I saw this quote.
The quote was a little too long to fit in the box of the birthday card I was sending my son, so when he was five years old, he requested that I put it on the front of the card.
I was happy to oblige, and it was my first birthday ever.
A very special day indeed.
He’s the first President ever to receive this award, and the last to receive it in his own home.
