Letter | Ike’s quote just as relevant today

June 3, 2014 

I ran across a quote from Dwight D. Eisenhower, which I thought worthy of repeating. It addresses two problems in our society: violence and poverty.

“Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and not clothed.”
