The Greatest Motivational Poster Ever

In 1939 the Nazi’s were making their move to capture all of Europe. Germany knew the linchpin was Great Britain, and Great Britain was well aware of its precarious position. In an unprecedented effort, the Department of the Ministry of Information commissioned a series of three posters to help bolster the flagging spirits of its countrymen.

Keep Calm Carry On

One poster stated, “Your Courage, Your Cheerfulness, Your Resolution Will Bring Us Victory,” another,  “Freedom Is In Peril.” The third poster in this series is the greatest motivational poster I have ever seen when it comes to simplicity and wisdom. The poster states, “Keep Calm and Carry On.”

I would say that our times of uncertainty require us to follow its timeless wisdom – Keep Calm and Carry On. The alternative, of course, would be to panic and run amuck, but I doubt that will do any one any good!
