We honor those who gave the last full measure and in so doing they have entrusted to us a legacy in which we must feel both pride and humility. In these thoughts we have looked more than favorably upon the past. We have found in our hearts regret and sorrow for their passing—but there is a danger in rejecting entirely upon the past. that we should stand at their groves with flags, flowers and tears? No indeed! In fact, the}' did not pass their way to be remembered thusly. I hey did not die for our regrets, but for their own honor. J hey did not die for our memories— but for their own principles. They did not die for our (ears—but for a nation's preservation! They did not die for us to dwell this morning on vain recollection but r<ith<-r upon the prospect of rededication. I hey did not die r.j be remembered with flags, flow ITS and tears but with the thought in mind that the futur might be better than the past. And while we honor them today we are called in the very essense of what w<; do in their mei very realistically into the future. ,As we honor those most dear, we must, in reality REDEDICATE oursel ves .... we must pledge ouselves anew to the work ahead. We live in a day when the world has seen the disas ters of war twice in our generation. And nothin revolting to the human soul. We are living in a day of Atomic and Hydroge Power—the most destructive weapons ever devised by mankind, and they are ready for use against us! And yet the battle against the elements of ungodly tyranny must be won by wisdom and belief in God and not in a raceforpower that will lictate the ruin of our civil zation and return us to the'Dark Ages'. Our part in the battle is the simple rededication o our loves to the principles once cherished by those over whose graves we share these thoughts. At this moment we must humbly and sincerely re dedicate ourselves in the highest traditions and best inten lions of those who have gone before. We rededicate ourselves to the prospect of making this state and this nation a gieater place in which to live. We rededicate ourselves to our spiritual and mora, obligations and, in the light of our former wrongs and shames, vve gird ourselves with the armor of truth, human dignity and a new pledge to decency and integrity in our personal, community and national affairs. W« rededicate ourselves to the prospect of an endur tng and lasting peace that growing millions of earth might have the freedom to obtain their rightful heritage in a world of peaseful and orderly living I recall a poem 1 learned several years ago, written by an English lady whose name 1 do not remembers. It weal like this: There are many doors That open into paradise, But none more lit with glory Than the door of sacrifice, The golden door. Higher can no man aspire. More he cannot give, Than to give his life That others might be saved, To die that they might live! First Methodist Church Paul L,_ Huscher, Minister Sunday School 9:30 a.m Morning Worship 10:30 am.

And that giving in honorable measure is the Richest fulfillment of what we might expect of our lives and our careers: of what God and country require of us and what these dead would expect of us. Those we honor today died to serve; in our rededication we will live to serve. Let us make ourselves worthy oz what is expected of us. We will be worthy of their sacrifice. The job we have yet to do is a big one. Their part in the over-all task was to give their life—ours must be an awful lot of living! And in our work we must not be afraid to trv.
