WoD – What oration!

I read this quote the other day, and was blown away by it.  It is so articulate, so sharp, so well-written, and so moving.  In a word, it is inspiring.  We need more oration like this in our world today.

It happens to be the preamble to a quote that every one of us knows.  I never knew this first part though.  Just for fun, I’ll leave off the famous part and paste it way below, to see if any of you know where this comes from, and who said it.  (Don’t peek).

Inspiring.

“In the long history of the world, only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its hour of maximum danger. I do not shrink from this responsibility—I welcome it. I do not believe that any of us would exchange places with any other people or any other generation. The energy, the faith, the devotion which we bring to this endeavor will light our country and all who serve it—and the glow from that fire can truly light the world…”

 

Wednesday:

NISHT MIT ALEMNENS (nihsht miht AHlaymihns)

Not entirely there

She’s nisht mit alemens, if you know what I mean.

 

 

 

 

 

 

“In the long history of the world, only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its hour of maximum danger. I do not shrink from this responsibility—I welcome it. I do not believe that any of us would exchange places with any other people or any other generation. The energy, the faith, the devotion which we bring to this endeavor will light our country and all who serve it—and the glow from that fire can truly light the world.

And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you—ask what you can do for your country.

My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man.”
