Su consiglio del nostro amico James abbiamo visitato la piccola isola di Roosevelt Island: oasi di pace tra L’Upper East Side e il Queens.
La forma estremamente allungata dell’isola termina con il Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park, un parco-memoriale progettato del grande Architetto Louis Kahn per celebrare il Presidente Roosevelt e il toccante Four Freedoms Speech da lui pronunciato nel 1941.
“In the future days, which we seek to make secure, we look forward to a world founded upon four essential human freedoms.
The first is freedom of speech and expression—everywhere in the world.
The second is freedom of every person to worship God in his own way—everywhere in the world.
The third is freedom from want—which, translated into world terms, means economic understandings which will secure to every nation a healthy peacetime life for its inhabitants—everywhere in the world.
The fourth is freedom from fear—which, translated into world terms, means a world-wide reduction of armaments to such a point and in such a thorough fashion that no nation will be in a position to commit an act of physical aggression against any neighbor—anywhere in the world.
That is no vision of a distant millennium. It is a definite basis for a kind of world attainable in our own time and generation. That kind of world is the very antithesis of the so-called new order of tyranny which the dictators seek to create with the crash of a bomb.”
