Weiremember it on many a Fourth of July picnic in the long ago. All your peaceful yesterdays we have taken it for granted. To-day it is fiercely and proudly at war. » . • Now many of us are seeing it for th e first time. We know that we may lose all it has ever stood for; suddenly it has become the most precious thing in the world. There it goes, fluttering over the kahki lines. A lump gets in our throat because we love it so much. Only now are we beginning to know the tremendous task before us. We watch dear friends depart and we know that some of these faces we shall never see again. We kno w the price we shall pay in wrecked bodies, in silent grief and in gold stars. It makes no difference. We are ready. y*fi''"' Through our long years of dream and illusion we had almost forgotten our beginnings and what it me ans to be free. Our heritage lay neglected while we followed false prophets and feared little fears. Only yesterday we cherished ease above liberty; only yesterday we felt ourselves divided on little things. Today we stand united against the common enemy who would destroy us all. We know now what we never kn ew in the days of our illusion, that this last great test had to come. Long ago it was written that those who would keep their freedom must ever stand ready to die for it, and that some day the battle must be joined. Such, sooner or later, has, been the destiny of every free people and it was too much to hope that with us it could have been oth erwise. Now have come the days of grim decision. They are also days of hope. Once more the faith and idealism of our fathers are working in our hearts. Once more we march with our brothers of Bunker Hill and Valley Forge, of Gettysburg and the Argonne, Once more the Flag moves forward, hope of the world, light of the op ;s pressed and downtrodden everywhere, a promise to our children, the living, magic symbol of all that we once were, all that we still can hope to be. r DISPLAY YOUR FLAG DURING FLAG DAY WEEK JUNE 8 - 14 The ^B^ ^P^ ^PF'^i& W
