From Wikiquote
No people on earth can be held, as a people, to be an enemy, for all humanity shares the common hunger for peace and fellowship and justice.

Dwight David Eisenhower (October 14, 1890 – March 28, 1969) was the Supreme Commander of Allied forces in Europe during World War II. He was also the 34th President of the United States.

  • "We must be ready to dare all for our country. For history does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid. We must acquire proficiency in defense and display stamina in purpose."[2]    
Simple: We must be brave and ready to give up everything for our county. This is because history does not allow people to take care of freedom if they are weak or afraid to do what needs to be done. We must be strong with our army and strong in our reason to fight.
