Here it is:
Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.
But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate -- we can not hallow -- this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

Hey, my fabulous admirers. I am hoping to discuss some important things that have happened lately. My school got a Harry Potter club! (Finally!) I may have the option to choose my school next year and I'm torn apart. Finally, I would like to say I'm very happy about my short stories and I can't wait for my month. Its going to be ice cream month! You will be able to find pictures of ice cream and blog posts about ice cream. I may even write a short story about ice cream; or a few! I'm totally excited; it wont be for a while though. Silver is February so she will decorate the site to her desire. Well, that's all folks!

Hey, I know I haven't posted in a while but I finally got time! I posted up a new really long riddle and Currently the first two chapters of my short story are up. The Secret, is about two girls who are best friends and one of them is hiding a major secret. You'll have to read to find out what happens. We have also started putting up our avatars from the silent moonstone email and we will have more paper dolls but Silver is re-editing them so they will be better for you!

It's Lily A. Again. On the story page, I put a little thingie into the sidebar that will tell you whenever we update a story, to make it more convenient for you. And I just added a tiny paragraph to Raquilon, if you're interested.
Hi everyone, it is Lily Alabaster. (I've decided Alabaster is now my last name. Like on official documents and stuff.) We had 214 visitors the day before yesterday, 125 yesterday, and today, we currently had 49 and are counting! At this rate, we'll get a domain soon! I don't have much to talk about now. Maybe I'll add more to my story. Ciao for now! Enjoy the site! We'll be adding a new page with doodles mostly from Fluff
I'm in such a good mood today! If you type in silentmoonstone on Google (no spaces) you'll find our site! Ice Cream actually figured that out, so credit goes to her, but I informed Google about our site, so it's kinda half and half. And also, we had more than 200 visitors yesterday! WHOOOOOOO! Oh, and thanks to Liana, who put a link to our website on hers. I think that may helped with the visitors. But still, thanks to our faithful viewers who check every day (Shruti) and comment (Shruti). Oh, by the way, Ice Cream and Fluffy used to blog the most, but now they blog the least. NO ONE blogs! Except me. I'll always blog. Even if I have pneumonia. I'll dictate and get Ice Cream to type. Anyway, rambling. Hope you like my new doll, bye!
Hi everyone! Sorry we haven't been posting in a while. We've all just been really busy with school and stuff. Like the writing assessment we just had, etc. More later-bye!
Edit- I saw that right after I posted, then went back and fixed it, but it didn't save the changes. So that's technically not. (To Shruti.)
Hi guys! It's Lily, your favorite moonstone. (Jk. Well, kind of.) We were thinking of buying our own domain name, but it's pretty expensive ($40 a year) for when only a few people visit a day. (Thanks to the people who do.) But if we get about 50 or so visitors a day, we might. Please keep visiting, and tell others! Oh, and if we do buy a domain name, we'll be able to have email addresses on it! For example, firstname.lastname@example.org. And we might offer emails on our site to you as prizes! Even though you might have emails already. Well, that's all. Bye!
P.S. I forgot to explain, a domain is a url without the host's site tagged onto it. If we bought one, the address would be www.silentmoonstone.com.
Hey guys, it's Silver. As you've already noticed, Lily and I managed to get our first paper doll up (if you haven't noticed, I am very concerned for your mental health). A few more will be up by the end of next week, including a Greek doll from Lily, another Greek doll from me, and a birthstone fairy doll from me. Moving on, can anyone guess who the previous post was from? I know who it is already, because it was kinda obvious... Prize to the first person who guesses correctly! (Email the answer to us)

Hi everyone, it's... someone. If I was a good girl (Look! I revealed something! I'm a girl!) then I wouldn't be posting right now. But I'm not (don't say anything about that) so I am. Doing the science project presentation with Silver tomorrow, who has gone MIA (so has her flash drive.) I am supposed to be sleeping even though it's not late, but I felt guilty that no one's posted for a while. Well- I'm drawing a Greek style paper doll and abandoning the fairy at the moment. Hope you like it when I post! I was a little disappointed about the lack of commentors on the doll (I know it was bad, but THAT bad?) but our viewer number went up to 73 a few days ago. You know, Liana hasn't posted on her blog for a really long time. :( I'm getting worried, she was going to give us some feedback on the doll. I was looking forward to it. (Again- :() Okay, got to go. Bye! VOTE IN THE POLLS!
