On Memorial Day in America, we celebrate Winston Churchill, who loved America and the Americans who fought and died for freedom.

Mark Helprin pays tribute to Winston Churchill at Hillsdale College's 2011 Commencement Address on a video made available by Sunlit Uplands. The video starts slowly then takes off. Mark Helprin begins his talk at the 5-minute mark. Extraordinary.

Our thanks to Daniel Cassidy, who posted the video on his brilliant blog.

Wonderful speech! Did our president get the memo?
