FDR on Chistmas

From Jon Meacham in yesterday's WaPo,

Sixty-five Christmas Eves ago, on the South Portico in 1941, with Churchill at his side, FDR declared: "Our strongest weapon in this war is that conviction of the dignity and brotherhood of man which Christmas Day signifies . . . Against enemies who preach the principles of hate and practice them, we set our faith in human love and in God's care for us and all men everywhere."

For a nation at war, whatever our politics or our religion, it remains an ageless message.
Merry Christmas to you all.

Well put! Thank God there were leaders like Roosevelt and Churchill to lead the Allies in that most crisis-filled time in our history.
