I am here, Dwight Eisenhower.

I suffered very much over here because I didn’t do enough to stop the troubling trends that resulted in today’s difficulties. I saw what was happening, and said so to the American people in my farewell address to the nation in 1961. But that wasn’t enough to prevent my sufferings. I had more light, so there was even less excuse.


Dwight David “Ike” Eisenhower (October 14, 1890 – March 28, 1969) was a five-star general in the United States Army and the 34th President of the United States, from 1953 until 1961, and the last to be born in the 19th century. During World War II, he served as Supreme Commander of the Allied forces in Europe, with responsibility for planning and supervising the successful invasion of France and Germany in 1944–45, from the Western Front. In 1951, he became the first supreme commander of NATO. (Source: Wikipedia)
