WHAT - RAKES A COMMUNITY
The other day we were listening to
the preachers and the politicians af
firming that the millennium was just
around the corner. We were of the
opinion that wars were a thing of the
past. That the "brotherhood of man"
was but a question of organization
and would soon be accomplished.
Somehow all these fond wishes and
glorious prophecies have not material
ized. We have seen the world engag
ed in the worst war since the world
began. In the midst of the mighty
struggle we tried to comfort ourselves!
in various ways. The war was mak
ing demigods out of men, they were
being transformed in the crucible of
war, this was a war to end war, dem
ocracy would be supreme and the
golden age would be ushered in by
the victory of the allies. We forgot
that war is brutalizing, that it is or
ganized killing and as an African
proverb puts it "the war drum has
not ornaments", that no amount 5f
oratory and apology can make it a
glorious thing. We have' learned that
the victory of the allies did not mean
the end of the war and the coming
of the millennium. The world is full
of hatred. The Near East is afire
with the flaies of war which threaten
to engulf all Europe. Economic re
covery is dreadfully slow. Hate,
greed jealousy cannot be put aside
in the face of a great emergency.
America 'the moral ruler of the na
tnons suddenly backslid from her
high place and reversed all that she
had learned from the Nazarene when
she said "America first."
We come to sad times. The ece
nomic situat'on in America has been
exceedingly bad for the last three or
four years. We are glad to believe
that there are indications of a slight
K improvement. The moral situation
has been more threatening than the
economic. Our people have seemirely
thrown off all restraint and we have
seen such an orgy of *orldliness as
we did not tlink oursel'ves capable of.
We have heard a great deal about the
"wild young people" and of their do
ings. Men in every walk of life have
seen this and have been wondering
what is to be the e!.d of it all. Law
liness, drunkeness, sensuality have
been rampant among all classes.
President Harding has called on us
to put emphasis on "Better Homes in
America." Perhaps here is the key
to the terrible situation 'we are in.
The decay of the individual, commun
ity s.nd state is no doubt due to th'e
decay of our homes. The foundation
of the nation is the hearthstone. If
that foundation is not strong the sup
erstructure will topple. Our homes
are weak in authority, in example and
poor in ideals. Let ,us strengthen
them and we shall'have better com
munities and nations. Tomorrow is
in the hands of the homes of today.
If tomorrow is chaotic the bisme is
fundimentally on the homes of today.
Let us strengthen our homes.
