We Are All Brits Today

GOD be with all of London and Great Britain, especially those people who have been injured and those who have lost loved ones. I sincerely hope that we can all come together during this time of horror.

Of course, rarely is there a time or event to which a quotation of Winston Churchill is not in order. Today I am reminded of four:

Never give in--never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.
Sir Winston Churchill, Speech, 1941, Harrow School

The British nation is unique in this respect. They are the only people who like to be told how bad things are, who like to be told the worst.
Sir Winston Churchill, Hansard, June 10, 1941

One ought never to turn one's back on a threatened danger and try to run away from it. If you do that, you will double the danger. But if you meet it promptly and without flinching, you will reduce the danger by half.
Sir Winston Churchill

As Great Britain has stood with us in good times and bad, let her know that the U.S. will stand with her now. Most of all let it be said of our two countries that we stood for what was right even when it meant facing the danger in a world so quick to take the path of least resistence.

It's not enough that we do our best; sometimes we have to do what's required.
Sir Winston Churchill
