In Honor of Memorial Day

In honor of all the men and women who have given their lives defending this great nation since its birth I am sharing a moving patriotic quote from Walt Disney recorded during a radio broadcast on Mar. 1, 1941.

Thank you for all you do. May you never be forgotten.

“Once a man has tasted freedom he will never be content to be a slave. That is why I believe that this frightfulness we see everywhere today is only temporary. Tomorrow will be better for as long as America keeps alive the ideals of freedom and a better life. All men will want to be free and share our way of life. There must be so much that I should have said, but haven’t. What I will say now is just what most of us are probably thinking every day. I thank God and America for the right to live and raise my family under the flag of tolerance, democracy, and freedom.”

Goofy Trivia: During World War II the Disney animators helped the war effort by creating training videos for the Navy and propaganda shorts that were shown all over the country. All branches of the military requested films from the Walt Disney.
