My two young sons heard all of the Dr. Seuss books over and over again. They knew them by heart to the point that when I began to change and ad lib. to the stories somewhat it was to their total disgust." That's not right dad ." "No, he didn't dad". Etc. Which all brings to mind many happy bedtimes, reading books. Perhaps, today the books of Dr. Seuss are no longer as fashionable as they once were, but I recently found the following cartoon which reminded me....
The America first people felt safe and secure behind two oceans and there was little compassion for the millions of refugees who began fleeing from the Nazi terror. Many, but not all were turned away from the land of the free and the home of the brave. Fortunately, a great leader was farsighted enough to see the danger to us and lead this nation into a just and righteous war which ended in victory.
Now, we have and are fighting in many wars far away, many, if not all are ill advised with no clear ends insight the world. In addition our leader now choses to fawn up to dictators and autocrats whereve he finds the. The nations and people have changed dramatically since world war two. There are new dangers and new and better opportunities but that great leader Franklin D Roosevelt advised us facing a great depression in world war"," the only thing we have two fear is fear itself."
Today "we are being told again "it's "America first", which implies our friends and allies are on their own and that if we follow one man all the fears and grievances which he encourages will go away. Above all he will" "make America great again". Perhaps, my two brave and compassionate sons learned a few lessons from the good Dr. Seuss.
THE FOREST OF THE CITY BEING ALONE
MISSLES RAINING DOWN
FOREIGN NATIONS INVADING THIS COUNTRY
AND for sure don't fear any child or mother or father who flees to this nation to escape war and death.
