Leaders Quotes

I think it's only in a crisis that Americans see other people. It has to be an American crisis, of course. If two countries fight that do not supply the Americans with some precious commodity, then the education of the public does not take place.

It's still there. The power of faith to drive out demons. And this film showed that and they embraced it.
