Quite remarkable that this nation fought and won World War II (as well as WWI) bravely and valiantly without the words “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance.
In 1962 JFK concluded his speech to the nation about the grave nuclear missile crisis in Cuba with these words: Thank you and good night.”
In 2001 GWB concluded his speech to the nation on the day after 9/11 with these words: “As we have been assured, neither death nor life, nor angles nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height or depth, can separate us from God’s love. May he bless the souls of the departed. May he comfort our own. And may he always guide our country. God bless America.”
