While visiting Poland today, Mitt Romney highlighted the legacy of freedom shared by their nation the United States. Featured prominently in Romneys speech in Warsaw was recognition of the Pope from Poland, John Paul II, and his contribution to the fall of the Soviet Union.
In 1979, a son of Poland, Pope John Paul the Second, spoke words that would bring down an empire and bring freedom to millions who lived in bondage. Be not afraid those words changed the world, Romney said.
After recalling Pope John Pauls visit to Poland in 1979, Romney continued to speak about the pontiffs commitment to the value of freedom.
John Paul the Second understood that a nation is not a flag or a plot of land. It is a people a community of values, Romney continued. And the highest value Poland honors to the worlds great fortune is mans innate desire to be free.
Romney also referred to the statue unveiled earlier this month by the Poles featuring Pope John Paul II and Ronald Reagan and concluded his speech reminding them that Poland has no greater friend and ally than the people of the United States.
