Franklin D Roosevelt (US President) speech SOT
- I am happy to speak to you from my home on a sabbath day that has been observed in so many of your home communities as brotherhood day / No greater thing could come to our land today than a revival of the spirit of religion that could sweep through the homes of the nation and stir the hopes and the hearts of men and women of all faiths / The good neighbour idea, ideal as we are trying to practise it in international relationships, needs to be put in to practice in our community relationships / The very state of the world is a summons to us to stand together / Religion in wide areas in different parts of the earth is being confronted with irreligion / Our faiths are being challenged / It is because of that threat that you and I must reach across the lines between our creeds and make common cause
