The demonstration seemed to represent a breakthrough for young leftists and other revolutionary activists who have struggled to find their voice since the military ousted President Mohamed Morsi in July.
By Roberta Rampton WASHINGTON (Reuters) - In a handwritten tribute to the words of a president he has long admired, President Barack Obama said on Tuesday that the Gettysburg Address has provided him late-night solace when he considers the long struggle for equality in America. "At times, social and economic change have strained our union," Obama wrote in his tribute, posted late on Tuesday on the White House website after Obama took some criticism for not participating in a ceremony marking the 150th anniversary of President Abraham Lincoln's famous speech. "But Lincoln's words give us confidence that whatever trials await us, this nation and the freedoms we cherish can, and shall, prevail," Obama wrote. Obama said he sometimes visits a room in the White House that Lincoln used as his office after his family has gone to bed to look at an original copy of the address in Lincoln's hand.
