    Via an email-History doesn't gibe with the history books of the 30's,40's,50's.

    >> OBSERVER:
    >>
    >> Today I went to visit the new World War II Memorial
    >> in Washington , DC . I got an unexpected history lesson.
    >> Because I'm a baby boomer, I was one of the youngest in
    >> the crowd. Most were the age of my parents, Veterans of
    >> 'the greatest war,' with their families. It was a
    >> beautiful day, and people were smiling and happy to be
    >> there. Hundreds of us milled around the memorial, reading
    >> the inspiring words of Eisenhower and Truman that are
    >> engraved there.
    >>
    >> On the Pacific side of the memorial, a group of us
    >> gathered to read the words President Roosevelt used to
    >> announce the attack on Pearl Harbor:
    >>
    >> Yesterday, December 7, 1941-- a date which will live
    >> in infamy--the United States of America was suddenly and
    >> deliberately attacked.
    >>
    >> One elderly woman read the words aloud:
    >>
    >> 'With confidence in our armed forces, with the
    >> abounding determination of our people, we will gain the
    >> inevitable triumph.'
    >>
    >> But as she read, she was suddenly turned angry.
    >> 'Wait a minute,' she said, 'they left out the
    >> end of the quote.. They left out the most important part.
    >> Roosevelt ended the message with 'so help us God.'
    >>
    >> Her husband said, 'You are probably right.
    >> We're not supposed to say things like that now.'
    >>
    >> 'I know I'm right,' she insisted. 'I
    >> remember the speech.' The two looked dismayed, shook
    >> their heads sadly and walked away.
    >>
    >> Listening to their conversation, I thought to myself,
    >> Well, it has been over 50 years she's probably
    >> forgotten.'
    >>
    >> But she had not forgotten. She was right.
    >>
    >> I went home and pulled out the book my book club is
    >> reading --- 'Flags of Our Fathers' by James
    >> Bradley. It's all about the battle at Iwo Jima .
    >> I haven't gotten too far in the book. It's
    >> tough to read because it's a graphic description of the
    >> WWII battles in the Pacific.
    >>
    >> But right there it was on page 58. Roosevelt 's
    >> speech to the nation ends in 'so help us God.'
    >>
    >> The people who edited out that part of the speech
    >> when they engraved it on the memorial could have fooled me.
    >> I was born after the war.! But they couldn't fool the
    >> people who were there. Roosevelt 's words are engraved
    >> on their hearts.
    >>
    >> Now I ask: 'WHO GAVE THEM THE RIGHT TO CHANGE THE
    >> WORDS OF HISTORY'
    >>
    >> Send this around to your friends. People need to know
    >> before everyone forgets. People today are trying to change
    >> the history of America by leaving God out of it, but the
    >> truth is, God has been a part of this nation, since the
    >> beginning. He still wants to be...and He always will be!

    A quick check with http://www.truthorfiction.com/rumors/w/wwiimemorial.htm would debunk the gist of this post.

    I also like to check with snopes.com, too.

    Re: Changing History

    I know that this line was/is in the original FDR speech to Congress the next day;(Day of Infamy)

    "With confidence in our armed forces -- with the unbounded determination of our people -- we will gain the inevitable triumph -- so help us God"

    I think they para-pharsed it on the Memorial or just didn't put the whole speech/sentence on it.

    Re: Changing History

    Talk about timing ! Just yesterday afternoon, I watched this week's programming of Creation In The 21st Century, with Dr. Carl Baugh. He and his guest were talking about how God has been systematically removed from out schools, public meetings, etc. and also, pointed out that there is no mention of God anywhere on the WW II Memorial. Even though, as they stated, FDR DID call on God's help in the task that was ahead of our country at the time.
