Snapshot 23rd January 2023: Twitter, youtube, quotation … a world at war.

“I have seen war.  I have seen war on land and sea.  I have seen blood running from the wounded.  I have seen men coughing out their gassed lungs.  I have seen the dead in the mud.  I have seen the cities destroyed.  I have seen 200 limping, exhausted men come out of line–the survivors of a regiment of 1,000 that went forward 48 hours before.  I have seen children starving.  I have seen the agony of mothers and wives.  I hate war.

Franklin D. Roosevelt
