If You Were There Instead of Here
IF YOU SHOULD SEE A FRENCH CHILD--a tiny
girl---sitting by the roadside, sobbing quietly because she
is too weak from hunger to cry very loud, you would sell
your watch to buy her breakfast.
If you should hear somewhere in the restless wards
the low moan of an American soldier, you would gladly
sit by him all night, if that would save his life.
You are not there, but here, where these sights and
sounds are not brought home to you! But the Red Cross
is there---and you can make it your representative!
Over there the Prussians are crucifying the incarnate
Liberty of Man, and they are making the world black
for little children!
The money you give to the Red Cross now will give
you the right, when the Beast is beaten down, to think:
"There are happy children, clear eyed women, and strong
men alive today, because my money went across!"
