Stand Firm America !

In a another time when the world was in crisis and England stood alone against the might and fury of Hitler's Germany in 1941, FDR sent Prime Minister Winston Churchill the following verse from Longfellow:

. . . Sail on, O Ship of State!
Sail on, O Union, strong and great!
Humanity with all its fears
With all the hopes of future years
Is hanging breathless on thy fate!
