Remembering WWII

In searching YouTube for something to post in honor of Pearl Harbor Day, I found this short newsreel from April 20, 1938. America's involvement in World War II was 3 years away, but Roosevelt was already warning the country about what was happening in other parts of the world and what they could NOT allow to happen in America.

It is almost as if he is warning us of this today.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
