A drum, a little red wagon, a picture book . . . these
are gifts that bring joy to a boy's heart. But you can
give him a far greater gift. You can give him the right
to live as a free American ... the advantages of liberal
schooling . . . the freedom to follow his religious beliefs
. . . the privilege of choosing his life-work . . . yes, even
the unquestioned right to gain a world of knowledge
and pleasure through travel.
All this you can give him by doing whatever you can
no matter how little to win this war so that he may
live to appreciate fully the true meaning of Christmas
. . . peace on earth and good-will toward men.
Today, in the Union Pacific family, thousands of
fathers are working tirelessly to justify the steadfast
faith of their children. Theirs is the task of assuring
the safe transportation of trainloads of war materials
and troops. It is a tremendous job but they are doing
it gladly. They know, as do we all, that only through
hard work and sacrifice can we give our little ones the
greatest gift of all . . . peace and freedom.
