“Their’s is the Highest and Purest Democracy” Rabbi Roland Gittelsohn’s Dedication Sermon at Iwo Jima

Friends of Padre Steve’s World,

Here is my latest at Substack. I think that it is important for such a time as this. My words only provide historical background. The real message is that of Rabbi Gittlesohn. It is one of the great speeches of American history along with Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, and Dr. King’s I Have a Dream.


I hope that his words inspire you.


Padre Steve+
