In Mutual Respect And Love

Tammy Baldwin's newsletter passes on this quote to ponder during the Memorial Day weekend. Any emphasis is mine.
“We pray that peoples of all faiths, all races, all nations, may have their
great human needs satisfied; that those now denied opportunity shall come to
enjoy it to the full; that all who yearn for freedom may experience its
spiritual blessings; that those who have freedom will understand, also, its
heavy responsibilities; that all who are insensitive to the needs of others will learn charity; that the scourges of poverty, disease, and ignorance will be made to disappear from the earth; and that, in the goodness of time, all peoples will come to live together in a peace guaranteed by the binding force of mutual
respect and love.”

The speaker was, of course, the well-known mushy liberal, Dwight David Eisenhower.
