League of Nations

After World War I, President Woodrow Wilson proposed the League of Nations as a part of his Fourteen Points plan for an equitable peace in Europe.  The League of Nations was an international organization that attempted to resolve international disputes, headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland.  He believed that the League of Nations would be an effective organization and began a tour across the United States to promote America’s membership, traveling over 8,000 miles in twenty-two days.

Wilson stated, “I cannot see how it can fail to have support of all the forward-looking Christian people.”  He said to the American public that isolationism would not work.  However, even after the demanding tour, the United States did not become a member. The Senate noticed that after it was created in 1920, that it was inefficient and elected not to join.

We have to realize that we must do our own homework to determine if our efforts will be successful. The wisdom we gain will allow us to work effectively towards the things we believe in. This is the way our goals will be accomplished. The world can be an even better place than it is now when we do all that we can.

Woodrow Wilson Signed Statement dated June 17, 1920.

    My background is retired paramedic/firefighter with Life Flight experience and lots of trauma experience. Not much scares me, rattles me or makes me make mistakes. I’ve done crisis intervention. I was in Parkland visiting family when the shooting took place. I was picking up my grandkids from a school 200 yards away when the shooting started. Got them home, 400 yards from the high school, sheltered in place with a 9mm to protect us with until we got the all clear that the suspect was arrested. I can handle weapons, can be mobile within 24 hours and I’m willing to do whatever it takes to help get kids out of sex slavery and into safety. I’m willing to be a “stash house” for anyone gotten out of harms way needing a place to stay short or long term. And I can pass a background check and have stellar references. All of this and so much more….and yet I look like a grandma….whatever you need that I can do, I’m there. Thank you for your consideration!
