Episode details

On this Thanksgiving weekend, I thought you may find of value a short (less than 5 minutes) collection of my favorite 5 clips from President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s Farewell Address at the end of his presidency, as he peacefully handed the reins of American power over to President John F. Kennedy.

Although it was given a few months after Thanksgiving, it carries a concern, a warning, a call to protect future generations, and ends with a prayer for peace, understanding, and — from this old warrior who defeated the Nazis and saved the world from fascism in WWII — love.

And it can be listened to by both Democrats and Republicans without fear of partisanship! (There’s a 3 second or so break between clips.)

Sending warmest Thanksgiving wishes from our family to yours…
