"It's a platitude to say that we can't exist as an island of plenty in a world of want, but it's true, and if any of you have any hopes about the world in which your children will live, whether it will be a peaceful world and a plentiful world or whether it will be no world at all, I suggest that you get up from behind your desks and carry this message to the people of America. There's only one war, you're in it and with your help, I'm sure we will win it."
