The Patriots of Peace.
Remember what Sherman 'said
about war ? It also applies to In
dependence day and the popping ,
roaring , cracking , whooping , ex
ploding that drives some folks al
most to insanity and means that
we are a nation of patriots and are
so glad of it that every year we
burn tons of powder and maim ,
mutilate and cripple between 4-
f 000 and 5,000 human beings
i mostly boys.
And the popular idea of patriot
ism is war. We are glad we fought
or that our ancestors fought , and
the hair bristles on the back of
our necks , and we feel , by hokey ,
that we can fight again and that
the foreigners from London Town
to Valdivostok had better keep off
the toes of your Uncle Samuel.
All right. The navy is growing
and we are spending millions for
target practice and more millions
for great guns. But let's hope
hard that there will never be an
other war , and that widows and
orphans will never again be made
in a strife with other nations or at
home. God grant it , is the pray
er of the millions.
A patriot isn't necessarily a sol
r dier. A man doesn't have to
storm a fort to prove that he loves
his country. That kind of brav
ery is fine. It gets into the pa
pers and there is a thrill of pride
even in the later days when flow
ers are strewn on graves and
women in black weep.
But don't you forget that there
are more patriots today than ever
before. There are millions of
them. They are behind counters
and in shop5 ? ; they are running
locomotives and tilling farms.
They are not thinking much about
war. They have no hatred in
And how is it that they are pa
Because they are trying to do
their full duty as American citi
zens. That is how.
They toil till their backs are
stooped and their hands gnarled
and knotted. They rear homes
and honor good women. They
bring up children and educate them.
They do not hesitate to deny them
selves to the end that those who
come after them shall find greater
opportunity and fill a better place
in the affairs of the world than did
They are fathers and mothers of
progress. They are the bone and
I blood and sinew that make the na
tion strong. They are the.living
exponents of charity , decency ,
energy and human love , and they
are stronger than the combined
armies and navies of the world.
And so , while the explosions in
memory of ' 76 shake the earth , be
glad that you are a worthy mem
ber of that great army The pa
t triots of peace.
GOD GUIDE THEM ALL.
