In this time of global crisis, the world needs inspiring words. This is your chance to win $10,000 for a frontline health organization or hospital of your choosing. In addition, the winner and a guest will be entitled to a funded trip to an International Churchill Society event in London or New York once the crisis is over.
Coronavirus threatens the entire world. In terms of global impact and upsetting the daily rhythms of our lives, the closest historical analogy is the Second World War. It is, therefore, no surprise that at this time of uncertainty and anxiety, many people are looking to the inspiring wartime leadership of Winston Churchill to find solace, determination and hope.
Eighty years ago, in the summer of 1940, Churchill rallied the British people and the world against the forces of tyranny. At the height of the Battle of Britain, Churchill said of the aircrew defending the nation, “Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.” The same can be said today for our medical professionals on the frontline of the pandemic.
