Dear Winston Churchill,
England was attacked by terrorists this month. Do you have anything
to tell the country you loved?
That I still love! Death does not diminish passion. It increases it!
Yes! I do have things to say. Those who wish to take down a great
country like England will not succeed. Nor will they succeed in
taking down America, or Australia or other great countries who
believe in the rights of man. Democratic countries do not fall
easily. Their spirits are too high and their own cause too precious
to succumb to misguided souls who believe that a religious belief is
more important than a human being's right to live.
An act of terror focuses the attention of the entire country and
makes as one the individual hearts of its citizens. A country may
argue within itself over all kinds of political issues, but when
even one outsider brings havoc into the land, there is unity of the
population and that energy is the strongest force on earth.
Stay focused on the big picture, not on the isolated destruction. It
is not England that is under fire. Nor is it Spain, Bali, the United
States, or any other nation. Pay attention to the whole ideology of
terrorism. It is the world which is under fire. Never forget it!
~~ Winston Churchill
