A Time For Choosing

Ronald Reagan said these words back in 1964. While thinking of the rising Radical Islamic threat, I realized that Mr. Reagan's speech applies to the challenges faced today as much as it applied to those challenges faced 42 years ago.

They say the world has become too complex for simple answers. They are wrong. There are no easy answers, but there are simple answers. We must have the courage to do what we know is morally right. Winston Churchill said that "the destiny of man is not measured by material computation. When great forces are on the move in the world, we learn we are spirits-not animals." And he said, "There is something going on in time and space, and beyond time and space, which, whether we like it or not, spells duty."


You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children’s children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done.



There is no doubt that if we lose this battle ith Radical Islam that the world will face a thousand years of darkness.
