February 1 – National Freedom Day

Today is National Freedom Day because on February 1, 1865, Abraham Lincoln signed what later became the 13th Ammendment, making slavery illegal. Since 1942, people have remembered this date by laying a wreath on the Liberty Bell at Independence Hall in Philadelphia.

I have chosen the way of truth;
I have set my heart on your laws.
I hold fast to your statutes, O LORD;
do not let me be put to shame.
I run in the path of your commands,
for you have set my heart free.

Psalm 119:30-32
