Twenty years ago today at Versailles in France a treaty was
signed ending a long seige of warfare in which almost every country
in the world had become engaged. In these series of battles many
men young and old had given their lives in what they were told was
to be the end of wars. They had sacrificed their futures that their
country's welfare might be saved. They had completely forgotten
self and their ambitions to come to the "aid of their country."
Now twenty years later when we commemorate the day we not
only remember these men and what they have done for our nation but
we remember their sad state and we pray that never again will such
an occasion arise when the American youth must give themselves for
so fruitless a cause. This thought comes as a stab to our consciences
when we read Rosa Marinonl's poem.
"It happened in Milan one summer night
While we were driving down a narrow street.
A fender crashed the breaks froze to a stop
Beneath the pressure of the driver's feet.
I hurled my ire against the guilty one:
'You should be taught to signal as you turn!
At least put out your arm!" I cried at him.
'You could have caused our car to overturn."
At first the man was silent then he spoke:
'Sorry' he said 'to cause you such alarm.
You did not see it for the night is dark
But as I turned I did put out my arm.
Please take my license number and my name
I hope you will forgive and understand.
I was a soldier once somewhere in France
My left arm is a stub. I have no hand.' "
Only a few weeks ago if the world so desired it could have found
itself in a war much more terrible than that of a score of years ago.
But the people of the world do not want to fight. They have realized
that the only result of warfare is destruction of physical beings hopes
ambitions and civilization.
Let us then on this Armistice Day remember not only the war
that has passed but press on toward a future of peace in which our
lives may be spent in the pursuit of happiness.
THE GREAT LIGHT
Sleep . . . suddenly disturbed ... a great bright orb above the
trees. . . shining in my eyes. . . no longer could I sleep. . . not with the
moon in my eyes. . . but I could dream. . .
A bare tree. . . already wearing signs of winter. . . high above
it the nocturnal light. . . fleating by. . . sometimes slowly. . . some-
times more quickly. . . clouds. . . some of them small white fluffy
ones. . . some big black ones. . . some dense. . . all telling of winter. . . .
for everywhere was ice and snow. . . sleet had just fallen to the ground.
. . . perhaps the moon was brighter because of the reflection from the
white earth. . . but it was a bright light shining everywhere.
And I dreamed. . . queer. . . it might seem. . . that in such a
dark night. . . so cold. . . the wind howling around the eaves of the
house. . . trees sighing as they were bent to the earth. . . and the night
might have been so black. . . but there was a moon. . . a great bright
light shining above. . . hiding the blackness. . . chasing away the
gloom. . . forbidding shadows. . . the light on high. . .
Dreaming. . . I thought of that other great Light. . . from high. .
that dispells gloom. . . drives away shadows. . . forbids blackness when
the night might be too dark to travel. . . when souls would be too tired
to go on. . . when hearts would faint. . . but for the light they see
ahead. . . for the vision of hope that comes from above . . for the faith
they cherish. . . for the guidance found in the light. . . guidance to a
brighter land. . . light that ends night. . . light that leads to a happier
destination. . . light that makes our lives the happier. . . that makes
our soul see that what is ahead for us is good. . . but always light. . .
As the night would have been bleak and dismal without the
moon. . . when the wind whistled in a ghostly voice thru the trees. . .
so our lives would be empty and afraid . . alone. . . without that light
that shines above. . . always. . . leading us thru the abyss. . . into day.
Slowly the moon sank nearer to the top of the tree. . . gradu-
ally it went behind the tree. . . until at last. . . it reached the horizon. . .
and was gone from sight. . . but it had not gone long until the sun
appeared. . . and day.
But still I dreamed. . . that light had led one thru the night. . .
it was not visible now. . . but the day had came. . . and the other light. .
with us in the night time. . . leading us to the time. . . when they will
shine for us.
