In “The Four Freedoms” speech we hear how it was a time of hardship for all Americans showing us that in the worst of times we are all in it together. In the “Welcoming Remarks” speech we hear again how in hard times we stand, work, and bleed together. Americans, regardless of their money situation, truly do face the United States problems
