via Daily Prompt: Graceful

Politics is known for  arrogant people.Only a few people like Abraham Lincoln were so graceful in their manners and behavior.When Lincoln was the U.S President, he sent an important note to one of  his subordinates in his administration to implement something.On seeing the note, the subordinate official passed a scathing remark on Lincoln and criticized his note as foolish.It was brought to the notice of Lincoln.Immediately he sent for the official and asked him to explain why his idea was foolish.When the official explained it, Lincoln was graceful enough to accept it, ignoring his scathing remark made against him.He also modified his note as explained by the official.That is why Abraham Lincoln was hailed as one of the greatest in US politics.
