On This Day...

On this day in 1940, as he took the office of Prime Minister, Winston Churchill was faced with the growing Nazi menace. He spoke these immortal words: "I would say to the House [of Commons], as I said to those who have joined this government: 'I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat.'"

What do you have to offer and what are you doing with it?
