President Roosevelt’s response to Pearl Harbor included these words:
"No matter how long it may take us to overcome this premeditated invasion, the American people in their righteous might, will win through to absolute victory...
We will not only defend ourselves to the uttermost but will make it very certain that this form of treachery shall never again endanger us."
With confidence in our armed forces - with the unbounding determination of our people - we will gain the inevitable triumph - so help us God."
Where is that fighting spirit today, and most importantly, the appeal to that God that has shed His grace on this nation?
It is God alone who raises up nations, and puts nations down. We need leadership that will be resolute in our mission, and surrendered to His sovereignty.
