On this day, June 16, 1858, Abraham Lincoln delivers his famous, "House Divided," speech at the close of the Republican state convention here in Springfield, IL.

"If we could first know where we are, and whither we are tending, we could then better judge what to do, and how to do it.

We are now far into the fifth year, since a policy was initiated, with the avowed object, and confident promise, of putting an end to slavery agitation.

Under the operation of that policy, that agitation has not only, not ceased, but has constantly augmented.

In my opinion, it will not cease, until a crisis shall have been reached, and passed.

‘A house divided against itself cannot stand.’

I believe this government cannot endure, permanently half slave and half free.

I do not expect the Union to be dissolved---I do not expect the house to fall---but I do expect it will cease to be divided.

It will become all one thing, or all the other.

Either the opponents of slavery, will arrest the further spread of it, and place it where the public mind shall rest in the belief that it is in course of ultimate extinction; or its advocates will push it forward, till it shall become alike lawful in all the States, old as well as new---North as well as South." Abraham Lincoln 6/16/1858

Turkey has moved to blocked access to +YouTube, a day after a court ordered the suspension of a ban on Twitter which the prime minister supported. http://bbc.in/1gFOGDI

Some users found access blocked while others could still use the site. Are you in Turkey? Have you been able to access it?

Foreign Secretary William Hague has welcomed the UN vote to support Crimea. He said:

"The international community has sent a strong message through the passing of this resolution that Russia cannot simply trample over international law. The result reinforces the fundamental principles upon which the UN was founded: principles of territorial integrity and of the non-use of force. President Putin should take notice of this clear and resounding message and work together with all parties to de-escalate the situation." #UnitedforUkraine #Ukraine
