2017 Day-By-Day

Day 282

I listened to the Abraham Lincoln episode of Presidential today and it was a surprisingly emotional experience for me. I’ve always admired Lincoln for his ardent pursual of education and what he was able to accomplish in his presidency, but what I had forgotten was that he suffered from depression. The podcast documented a time when he was so melancholy that his friends hid all the sharp objects in the house. The fact that he was able to do so much despite the depression that followed him all his life reminds me to just keep going, even when everything seems hopeless.
