WHAT THE WAR HAS DONE FOR
Out of this war ha coin.- many big
things. The whole world has suffered
as never before, and through the uni-
versal suffering, for one cause, has
come the realization of an aton«*m« nt
with mankind. The greatest thing the
war has given to humanity is this new
and lasting spirit of universal broth-
War did not give biTth to brother-
hood, but out of the thunderous tur-
moil has eome a tender revelat ion and
a regeneration of the brotherhood of
man. People of different nations had
thought democracy for many years,
but when they were compelled to
make a substantial contribution to
hasten the dawn of a bigger and b t
ter day, their thoughts were changed
to feeling, and their idea of demoei :u-v
became the spirit of brotherhood. IV
fore the war democracy was tltouuM
of ns an organized unit, looking ait r
its own interests, struggling for be*
ter things for all the people in tli t
organisation. But since the woildwas
led to a second Calvary and lias fe t
I the fellowship of suffering and sorrow
I there has been instilled into the life
land spirit of humanity a feeling of
I sympathetic understanding that flows)
into wider and deeper channels of very j
1 real brotherhood.
j Men and women of all ages and
I classes have to come to realize as
] never before the value of mutual con-
fidence and trust; and because of that
1 realization they are united iu a fel-
lowship of ideals. A man of wealth
[and travel said to me last week: ''Not
until my two sons answered the call
of the colors hii<I I had subscribed all
I could to the Red Cross, Y. M. C.
A. and Salvation Army, did T have a
feeling of interest in the welfare of
the rest of the world. Since then it
ins as though we are all bound to
gether in a great family of love. I be
e that has been the experience
all at home and abroad who have
made any sacrifices."
Just as the study of history con
firms the doctrine that "righteousness
xalteth a nation," so an examination
present conditions indicate that the j
one great essential of Christianity,
loving our neighbor, has not been |
weakened, but rather reinforced the
world over through the influence of
great war. This fact has been
lenced by the removal, to a ver\ [
m degree, of social and < m>s dis
tinction. Before the war there existed .
unpleasant breach between the
Rtruggling masses and those upon
whom fortune had smiled. The latter
were as a cla?s, inclined to put into
actice the humorous admonition of j
Josh Billings, who said: ''Remember
the poor; it costs nothing."
Not all men saw that all great so 1
11 responsibilities were embodied in j
words of the ancient law-giver,
Thou >Jialt love thv neighbor as tliv ,
If," but they cried out with Cain,
Am I my brother's keeper?"
Now that humanity has as one huge
family, been through a modern Geth- ;
scmanc; has supped together from a
full cup of grief, and lias f\ It the fel
iwship of sorrow, me:i and women
rywhere have come t« see that life
onsi^t' of something besides feverish-
following the rule of gold at the
expense of the "golden rule."
Perhaps nowhere is the growth and
strength of true brotherhood so vindi
ated as iu the camp, field and sea
life of the soldiers and sailors. These
n represent the evolution of thought
ml feeling of all the rest. Having
nt a year iu the IT. S. Naval Medi
Corps, I saw a unity <rt* feeling and

who live are tho-c who love; that su-

prehensive love, which is the virtue
of service. And from the quivering
heart cords of mutitudes there flows
a melody of sadness mingled with a
song of hope which springs from the
new revelations of brotherly love.
In this touching experience and
through it all, the invisible hand of
God has guided humanity and bound
