•••••••••••••••••§••••••••«••••••••••••••••»••••• "INK in my VEINS" BY MARIAN INMAN ****??••••*•*••••• •*••••••••••••.•.••••.•••••••*••*• "Grant us brotherhood, not only for this day but for all our years, a brotherhood not of words but of acts and deeds. We are all of us children of earth, grant us that simple knowledge, if their freedom is taken away our freedom is not secure." These few words of Stephen Vincent Benet are all the reminder we need that brotherhood is the very fabric of our life. That brotherhood is a personal thing. It begins with you and me. We must not only affirm the brotherhood of man, we must live it. The crest and crowning of all good, Life's final star, is Brotherhood." Edwin Markham. It hat been said that world brotherhood starts where your neighbor's lawn begins. Brotherhood and equal rights go hand in hand, yet after all these years we are still striving to attain equal recognition of all American citizens. We cannot truly accept the privilege of being Americans and not at the same time, assume the responsibility of being an American. This "Brotherhood" that sounds so well, This noble talk you talk so much, Is it a thing you buy and sell? Is it a thing that you can smell? A thing that you can touch? Joseph Auslander Be kindly affectloned one to another with brotherly love; in honor preferring one another. Romans, 12:10. This month we celebrate the birthday of our first president, George Washington. Washington's birthday is a legal holiday throughout the country. The observance was not delayed until after his death. He had the pleasure of receiving the congratulations of his fellow citizens many times, and often as the guest of honor at banquets celebrating the occasion. Too often we wait to honor, people after they are dead. I like the idea of showing our feelings of love and respect every day of our lives. George Washington was proud of being an American and tried always to impress fellow citizens of their right, to be proud Americans and of the responsibilities that go along with this right. In his farewell address, he said, "The name American, which belongs to you, in your national capacity, must always exalt the just pride of patriotism. You have in common cause fought and triumphed together; the independence and liberty you possess are the work of joint counsels and' joint efforts, of common dangers, sufferings, and successes." George Washington seldom indulged in jokes, but when he did, he always made a hit. In Congress, during a debate on the Federal Army, a member offered a resolution limiting the force to 3,000 men. Washington suggested an amendment providing that no enemy should ever invade the United States with more than 2,000 soldiers. Laughter completely smothered the resolution. Here are some great words of Washington, "True religion affords government its surest support. The perpetuity of this nation depends upon the religious training of the young." "A slender acquaintance with the worth must convince every man that actions, not words, are the true criterion of the attachment of friends." "Labor to keep alive in your breast that little spark of celestial fire — conscience." We who are living.today may think that we are called upon to make sacrifices for our country, yet we give up much less than George Washington did and our tasks and responsibilities are not so heavy as those he took upon his shoulders. A foolish man may be known by six things: Anger without cause, speech without profit, change without progress, inquiry without object, putting trust in a stranger and mistaking foes for friends. Arabian Proverb. It has been pointed out that one of the chief distinctions between man and lower animals is the fact that man alone has the ability to store up knowledge and pass it along from one generation to another. Most of us do not realize how many of our thoughts and opinions are inherited from thft past and how littte original thinking it actually ddrt*. for this reason we tan see the importance of eliminating from our store of knowledge old prejudice*, hatred*, j««lou.»e» and misconceptions. We should i»irt houteeleanlng rto* *o that future generation* will not be handicapped. •. • . _. — .^ Now is the time to start doing just this. Now is U\e time to be happy, to love our brother, to pray together, to bake a cherry pie, to send some cookies to a neighbor, to pass a cheery greeting, to look up at the Stars, as Goethe once said, "A man should hear a little niusic, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly <#res may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has, implanted in the human soul."
