Hungarian Freedom

President Bush right now is in Budapest giving a speech about freedom. He is discussing one of history's greatest failures; the Hungarian Revolution of 1956. It is important to remember the strength and courage of common people against tyranny. It is also important to remember how the world just stood by and allowed these people to be slaughtered by the Communists.

One of the most tragic things I ever read was a collection of radio announcements to the West from the rebels. They talked about rumors of Americans coming to their rescue. The last message was a plea for help as Soviets were entering Budapest. None of the radio-men survived.
