God willing, I will be 86 years of age when our young America turns 300. We have come a long way, yet we have an excessive amount of work to accomplish together. We know these truths to be self-evident. I’m optimistic, resolute, and willing to continue to be the change that I wish to see in our world. I hope you are having a safe and enjoyable Independence Day!
"[W]e look forward to a world founded upon four essential human freedoms. The first is freedom of speech and expression--everywhere in the world. The second is freedom of every person to worship God in his own way--everywhere in the world. The third is freedom from want--which, translated into world terms, means economic understandings which will secure to every nation a healthy peacetime life for its inhabitants--everywhere in the world. The fourth is freedom from fear--which, translated into world terms, means a world-wide reduction of armaments to such a point and in such a thorough fashion that no nation will be in a position to commit an act of physical aggression against any neighbor--anywhere in the world."
