Winston Churchill Day

 

 

Man

Today, April 9th, is Winston Churchill day. On this day in 1963, Churchill was made an honorary citizen of the United States and has been celebrated on this day every year since then. President John F. Kennedy presided over the ceremony held for Churchill. Winston Churchill was a great man but he became an Honorary Citizen mainly for his friendship he had to the American people and the nation. Other reasons were: his “freely offered hand and faith; bravery, charity and valor in both war and in peace; showing that no adversary can overcome a free man in the defense of their freedom; and his art as an historian.

As one can see, Winston Churchill was a great man that accepted this honor with great pride! To end, here are some inspirational quotes from Churchill!
