The lovely Bar Refaeli tried to join the debate this week over the current bloodshed in the Middle East. Only in trying to evoke the spirit of President Abraham Lincoln she cited an actor playing the 16th president on an episode of Star Trek.
There is no honorable way to kill, no gentle way to destroy. there is nothing good in war, except its ending -Abraham Lincoln,” Refaeli posted, with the hashtag #stopterror, alongside an Instagram photo of herself on the beach.
The only problem: The quote was never actually uttered by Honest Abe. Rather, in “Star Trek” season 3, episode 22, Captain Kirk and Spock encounter a Lincoln figure who imparts these words.
Pretty girls are many, pretty and smart girls are few. Parents, don't praise your pretty girls just because they are pretty. The pretty apples don't fall far from the tree. Teach them, instruct them, DISCIPLINE them and praise them ONLY when they deserve it and perhaps try and reduce the focus on the outside. Beauty is only skin deep and will not last forever.
