President Truman's Godly Inaugural Address

Our 33rd President was Harry S. Truman. (This is the man the newspapers declared the loser in that race!) In his 1949 Inaugural address he said:

"In performing the duties of my office, I need the help and prayers of every one of you.
"We believe that all men are created equal because they are created in the image of God. From this faith we will not be moved.
"These differences between communism and democracy do not concern the United States alone. People everywhere are coming to realize that what is involved is material well-being, human dignity, and the right to believe in and worship God.
"Steadfast in our faith in the Almighty, we will advance toward a world where man's freedom is secure. To that end we will devote our strength, our resources, and our firmness of resolve. With God's help, the future of mankind will be assured in a world of justice, harmony, and peace."
