As many folks are getting ready for the Luke Bryan concert tonight at the Cajundome, here's my message of the day before you head out.  It's about never giving up.  Don't quite,  One of my favorite singers, Patti laBelle said once, "Don't stop, can't stop, don't ever stop, don't dare stop".  Never stop working for something you believe in, whether that's a career goal, to better your marriage, to revive a friendship, etc.  And if you ever think of yourself as a loser, because you keep failing, I'd like to remind you about one of our most favorite Presidents.

182 years ago today, in 1832, an Illinois lawyer ran for his first political office, but lost.  He later lost four more times while running for Congress and the Senate.  This big loser was Abraham Lincoln.  See why you should never give up.
