educators face their greatest task. They can do their bit
in keeping us enslaved by telling children that the pound
ing of the war drum must always be answered by a war
dance of blood. We can be free if educators help the
young think for themselves.
The unborn minutes of the new year must show some
hint of the way in which the tones of human life can be
struck so that harmony results. Men everywhere need
not be bound by the past. We prefer the union that
exists when a natural chord is struck. Those brave men
of the new world colonies, who inspired the building of
the United States, joined forces in a common goal—
freedom. They secured it for their families. Are we
the equal of these?
