April 1941
America;4/12/1941, Vol. 65 Issue 1, p15
The author reflects on the direction of the U.S. following its decision of an all-out aid to Great Britain in 1941. He notes that the people's decision to elect U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1940 was anchored on the promise that America will not go to war. He cites that the president's pledge to stay out of the war remains doubtful as more than one million citizens have been drafted in the military for a campaign to help Great Britain against Nazi Germany. The author concludes by asking all Americans to pray for peace on Easter Sunday.
