A community gathering for "peaceful reflection" at Lincoln's Cottage tonight

Lincoln's Cottage reached out this morning to say they're hosting a "peaceful reflection" for the community as a way of coming together.

We recognize that people are expressing a need to come together, peacefully, when we are a House Divided. As a National Monument, where Lincoln came to deal with epic division and chaos in our country, we are committed to providing a secular place of reflection and serving as your beacon of hope.

Our lights are on for you. All of you.

President Lincoln’s Cottage will be open today from 3:30-7:30 PM for a time of peaceful reflection. The event is free, come-as-you-are, open to friends, families, everyone.

We’ve created an event on our Facebook page, and I’ve attached our flyer with more information. Please help us pass on the word.
