    • There are some fascinating documentaries on him that I’ve been watching lately. Just key into “Churchill” in your directory and you’ll come up with tons.

      Also the ones of him vs Hitler are wonderful…very powerful.

  4. Mine is:
    Friendship never questions you, it doesn’t have to ask. It shows in what you say and do, no matter what the task. Love one another each day as much as I love you. So trials and challenge you, and life seems so unfair hand in hand we’ll see them through because together we can bare”.
