Today marks the birth of the 33rd President of the United States, Harry S. Truman!
He never went to college, but was educated not only in history but in a thorough knowledge of the Bible!
With the sudden death of President Franklin Roosevelt on April 12, 1945, a little-known Vice President became President of the United States, in what would be the final year of World War II.
On April 16, 1945 President Harry Truman addressed a joint session of Congress. Using words from 1 Kings 3:9 he said: “As I have assumed my heavy duties, I humbly pray Almighty God, in the words of King Solomon: ‘Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart. . .that I may discern between good and bad; for who is able to judge this they so great a people?’”
