A Memorial Day Reminder

President Franklin D. Roosevelt

"I have seen war. I have seen war on land and sea. I have seen blood running from the wounded. I have seen men coughing out their gassed lungs. I have seen the dead in the mud. I have seen cities destroyed. I have seen two hundred limping exhausted men come out of line-the survivors of a regiment of one thousand that went forward forty-eight 
hours before. I have seen children starving. I have seen the agony of 
mothers and wives."

"I hate war."
