Winston Churchill: An Inspiring Soul

By RavenBird, Battle Ground, WA

“We shall not flag or fail, we shall go on to the end. We shall fight in France, we shall fight in the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be, we will fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the hills, we shall never surrender…” ~Winston Churchill

These are the words of one of the most inspiring figures in World War II, Sir Winston Churchill. His courage and will spurred the people of the United Kingdom to fight back, to defend their land, to never surrender. As the Prime Minister of England, he visited battle sites and fortresses, inspected defenses himself and visited the wounded. He would walk through the streets of a city as bombs were falling from the open sky, and everywhere he went, he held up his two fingers: his ‘v’ for victory.
