The proposed centenary of the hundred years of peace between the United States and the British Empire. A reading of some of the speaker's verse about war. The fighting that continues in Europe and Asia today. Doing our best to keep peace. Dealing with those who break the peace. What we can find to cheer us in the presence of apparently threatening clouds on the horizon. The promise which is contained in the proposed League of Nations. Comments with regard to forces not between nations but within nations. Conflicts of interests, conflicts of what is called class-consciousness. Hysteria as the danger of the day. The need to keep three things: our tempers, our memories, a recollection of recent history. Forgiving only on the condition of repentance. Standing for the right against the wrong.
