The American People Have a Great Genius for Splendid and Unselfish Actions

Ronald Reagan

“We cannot escape our destiny, nor should we try to do so. The leadership of the free world was thrust upon us two centuries ago in that little hall of Philadelphia. In the days following World War II, when the economic strength and power of America was all that stood between the world and the return to the dark ages, Pope Pius XII said, ‘The American people have a great genius for splendid and unselfish actions. Into the hands of America God has placed the destinies of an afflicted mankind.’

“We are indeed, and we are today, the last best hope of man on earth.” – Ronald Reagan, We Will Be A City Upon A Hill, January 25, 1974, First Conservative Political Action Conference
