Abraham Lincoln is among the nation's most prized and beloved personages. A man of nobility and leadership, he grew up among the impoverished and uneducated.Through perseverance he attained great knowledge of life and love for the American people.

"Liberalism is not so much a party creed or set of fixed platform promises as it is an attitude of mind and heart, a faith in man's ability through the experiences of his reason and judgment to increase for himself and his fellow men
the amount of justice and freedom and brotherhood which all human life deserves."... (John Kennedy)

Martin Luther King Jr. was able to express the inner anxieties of the oppressed black nation of the 1950's-1960's
and stands as one of the founders of present day society.
He was driven by his belief of justice and equality for those who were given none.
Has anybody here seen my old friend Abraham?
Can you tell me where he's gone?
He freed a lot of people,
But it seems the good die young,
But I just looked around and he's gone.
Has anybody here seen my old friend John?
Can you tell me where he's gone?
He freed a lot of people,
But it seems the good die young,
But I just looked around and he's gone.

Has anybody here seen my old friend Martin?
Can you tell me where he's gone?
He freed a lot of people,
But it seems the good die young,
But I just looked around and he's gone.

Didn't you love the things they stood for?
Didn't they try to find some good for you and me?
And we'll be free.
Someday soon,
it's gonna be
One day.

Has anybody here seen my old friend Bobby?
Can you tell me where he's gone?
I thought I saw him walkin' Up over the hill,
With Abraham, Martin and John

Versione italiana di Kiocciolina
ABRAHAM, MARTIN E JOHN

Qualcuno quì ha visto il mio vecchio amico Abraham?
Sapete dirmi dov'è andato?
Ha liberato un sacco di persone,
Ma pare che i buoni muoiano giovani,
Ma mi sono guardato intorno e pare che lui se ne sia andato.
Qualcuno quì ha visto il mio vecchio amico John?
Sapete dirmi dov'è andato?
Ha liberato un sacco di persone,
Ma pare che i buoni muoiano giovani,
Ma mi sono guardato intorno e pare che lui se ne sia andato.

Qualcuno quì ha visto il mio vecchio amico Martin?
Sapete dirmi dov'è andato?
Ha liberato un sacco di persone,
Ma pare che i buoni muoiano giovani,
Ma mi sono guardato intorno e pare che lui se ne sia andato.

Non amavate le cose per cui loro hanno lottato?
Non hanno provato a trovare qualcosa di buono, per voi e per me?
E saremo liberi.
Un giorno, presto,
Sarà
Uno di questi giorno.

Qualcuno quì ha visto il mio vecchio amico Bobby?
Sapete dirmi dov'è andato?
Pensavo di averlo visto camminare su per la collina,
Con Abraham, Martin e John.
