(Iowa) ADVANCE THURSDAY, MAY 13, •••••••••••••••••••••*•••••«••••••••••••••••••••e "INK in my VEINS" ?Y MARIAN INMAN People are so nice. I have had the most wonderful shower of cards, letters and gifts, wishing me a speedy re covery from my fall. And I am glad to say that slowly. I am getting to feel better. I had not realized how much one could ache and then I developed a mean cold. I have avoided a cold . all winter but I have a real one now. Well, enough of me and my pains. Thank you again for the good wishes. Among the many letters is one that is very special to me. It is from Margaret Durant who is so understanding and whose friendship I regard highly. She enclosed a poignant poem, beautiful and sad and one touching the hearts of so many today. She has titled it, "Letters From Home" and as . I read it, I felt a tightening of my throat and the rush of burning tears to my eyes as I remembered the time my lads wrote , about letters from home and what they meant and today as wars go on many Mothers are feeling the same way. Can we •; ever bring about peace? How much we have to do. "What shall we write that has not long before Been said to others in another war? "When you come home!" the trite and poignant phrase, Cries back from letters penned in long-past days, A never changing pattern war has set Our hearts to place upon the page. Forget 1 The premonitions of dream-ridden night, And in the radiance of morning write — ''When you come" with every word a bell Of chiming verity that all is well." — Margaret Durant Thank you Margaret for sharing this beautiful poem • with us. We are especially fortunate to have a poet in our midst. Left be sure we award her laurels now while she is with us. When you read this column, Mother's Day will just be over. Let's not forget that every day is Mother's Day and occasionally repeat the little courtesies and gifts and acts of love throughout the year when we are still privileged to have her with us. .,.',...... "Mothers are just Mothers. No more and no less, wher- < ever you may find them. You can't add anything to their stature, and they dont' need it; you can't take anything away from it, and who would? Mothers are constant, dependable, unchangable." It is said that high above tlie earth, with its clutter and confusion, all mortal sounds blend into a parfect harmony — " a symphony of the spheres. Even so, high above our creed- prattle, our shrieking intolerance, our claims to racial superiori- ; ; ty, there is a realm of abiding harmony where all men are bro- 'tiiers. There should be but two goals in life and they are not the winning of fame and fortune. Instead, they are self-pres- '•, ervation, both body and soul, and service to others. The person who serves others derives true satisfaction from, life. The ' person who is good, kind and considerate is helping to re-arm ,,. our country morally. ; Life must be lived in light and sunshine to be worth • living.. Service and kindness are the light and sunshine of our lives. One of the best pieces of advice I have heard is this one: Instead of sitting) around and Awaiting to go to Heaven, why not make Heaven out of your surroundings. People who sit around waiting for blessings to fall from above — like rain — or who are content to wait to go to Heaven instead of trying to make Heaven come to their surroundings, show as poor judgment as the person who refuses to water his lawn during a dry spell and insists upon waiting for rain. The man or woman who seeks to make a Heaven on this earth will truly find Heaven during his material life, and should benefit by his good deeds hereafter. ; This is the spirit of moral armament. It is the spirit of brotherhood and human consideration. It is a spirit which will make our nation strong and must be a part of any defense program that is going to succeed. Without moral rearmament everything else is wasteful sacrifice. We live in an age when our people are restless and not content to enjoy quiet contemplation of life. Something must be happening every minute or we become bored. To save ourselves from becoming dissatisfied and even sick mentally and physically we must try to renew our self preservation, both body and soul and give service to others. "Goodness is always an asset A man who is straight, •j ?" friendly, and useful may never be famous, but he is respected • and liked by all who know him. He has laid a sound foundation .; for success and he will have a worthwhile life." ' .- _ Algona youth wins in poster contest Timothy J.
