RE: [Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia] Digest Number 614
Thanks for the film link. They are always welcome.
I can come up with a medium accurate list of the Orders and Medals awarded to Haile Selassie I, but not the fraternal awards and ranks. Of course, I'd be interested in adding the info to my archive if someone else has it.
thanks and blessings,

War is not the only means to stop war. Men of goodwill, who fully recognize their duties, should be able, with the assistance of all free men, to prevent war and help rehabilitate all those who were debilitated and damaged by war, in order to protect this precious diamond, 'Peace'.
HIM Haile Sellassie's Message to America - Dec 25, 1937
"Throughout history, it has been the inaction of those who could have acted; the indifference of those who should have known better; the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most; that has made it possible for evil to triumph."
Haile Selassie I
Addressing the United Nations
4 Oct 63
"Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the lives of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children... this is not a way of life in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron."
Dwight D. Eisenhower
"As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's
desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright
moron." -- H.L.Mencken
