t—ALOQNA Q«w» AbVANCt MQNbAY, M-B. IS, IMS *I'NK in my VEINS n By MARIAN INMAN On the day Sir Winston Churchill's funeral was televised, l tuned in early in tne morning and cmignt mis poignant nine scene via Jeistar. Vvalcncu ior a iiasii bacK an uay oui never saw it again. Queen Elitabeth, slim »nd sweet in » simple suit and Hnnce Hhinp with their young son Prince chnries were walking up some high steps, possibly the Cathedral. Walter KronKire announced tnem. 1 hen the picture turned to the base ot the steps where Lady cnorcniil appeared seemingly atone tor a moment, among ell the uniformed personnel, mr fvronkite said, "Laay Lhur- chill" tnen hesitated. She reached out her hand grop- ingiy, as tnougn to grasp sir Winston's arm, to stanu uy his kiae as she had through all the years, then seemed to realite, he had gone on ahead. The picture flashed off and former President Eisenhower was snown giving lus farewell mossuge to ms goud ifiend bir Winston, my neart and my hand reached cut ovur tne miles to grasp i^ddy Churcmil s hand in sympathy. 1 know tne aazcd, lost muling she was experiencing in those first lonely hours. "But tins will pass, and whole the sad winds sang, DUds will green the hills ot some tomorrow." When the prites were being distributed at the Federal Land Bank dinner, Glen Graham, who was MC for this part, announced a prue of a topless bathing suit to a size 12 who was brave enough'to raise her hand. After much urging, still no on* responded, and on a fun impulse, I did *o. Amidst the general laughter I received the prize, a box of candy. At the Valentine brunch tor my sons and famines the 20 of us will wear it becomingly. Brotherhood week is observed as a reminder to nil of us that we are brothers, that we have a responsibility toward eacn otner, that even tnough we are of diit'orcnt races and creeds, we need each other. This feeling of brotherly love must start in our own hearts, its influence will spread into our families, into our communities, and our. world. Our great hope is for peace, a peace of dignity and freedom. As U. 5. citizens we have enjoyod many freedoms, freedoms our forefathers fought tor. Our great responsibility is to protect our right to speak, to think, to work, to worship as we will. To keep our .nation strong, its citizens must work together in goodwill and understanding, and we must also accept responsibility for our brothers in other parts of our world. • , ^_. M It is in our hearts and homes that we must plant the seed of understanding and carefully tend and guard that it may blossom into full bloom, bven though we think our neighbor is a bit peculiar, let's look into his heart and his dealings and try to understand him. We are so quick to criticize what we do not understand. And to feel brotherly, neighborly, we must understand each other. You know, he probably' feels we are a bit peculiar also. And while we are working together here at home in brotherly understanding it will not be difficult to continue the programs, the exchange visits, the assistance we-have given our brothers in the other.countries of o'ir world who need our patience and understanding; Tolerance is a word we use freely. Webster says, "Tolerance is a willingness to be tolerant and patient toward peoples, whose opinions or ways differ from one's own." We must be patient and understanding, folorant, but we must be careful .not to carry this too for. Wo could do this if we say,we tolerate Communism. As loyal U. S. citizens, we have a. responsibility to protect ourselves, our country and our suppressed brothers in the . world. We do not tolerate the devil and his works and .pomps, so Communism, an evil force toward good, we must withstand. If we say welcome to subversive ways we share in its tvil works. I believe that we are now on a testing ground. Faith in God must be the force that sustains us. now. With that faith we go forward, not backward. . Our faith has been wavering a bit and that is why we do not gain in our fight for peace. Faith in God adds invincibility to the might of our material strength, while lack of faith renders it important. We have a definite challenge to renew faith in God, and faith in man. And faith in God is belief in man. This is our Christian brotherhood responsibility. It is our citiien responsibility, A short time ago I read a short story that concerned brotherhood and understanding of a new young couple in a small town. Of their lonliness and heartaches until they were finally understood and accepted into what had boon a tightly fenced-in community. At a neighborhood gathering the fences were torn down and this is the prayer that was raid, Let us never forget, O Lord, that each man is a neighbor unto the next, no matter if they dwell <> stone's throw, or miles apart. If ever we meet a man, we think to be a stranger, by his garb, or manner, or spotch, let us look into his heart. If therein we find honor, kindness, and good will, he is not a stranger. He is our friend, our welcome neighbor, our brother.
