Sunday Morning Pulpit


On Thursday’s Day in History, January 17 (1961) in 1961 President Eisenhower gave his final speech to the American people. He asked them to abandon warfare and adopt more diplomatic means to resolve conflicts. He prayed that someday people of all faiths, all races, and all nations will come together in a peace guaranteed by the binding force of mutual respect and love.

The above is from the History Channel calendar.

I don’t know if it was the same speech or not, I suspect it was, that he said, “Be aware of the military-Industrial complex”.

My guess is they will be in the same place one way or another.
