Not much, however, in comparison with other nations and peoples, and for this we are thankful. But now it is all past and we are glad.

No longer are our pillows wet with tears ad our sleepless brows burning hot through the night, won dering how the boys are 1 in the trenches, wondering whether they live or die. Thunder of Guns Stilled by Peace. No longer do we wake from trou lfled sleep, startled and anxious thinking we hear them call.

The purpose of the war lords of Germany was you from falling hands we throw The torch.
