MWU7 Tin's year many families will be reunited at last and at the festive table heads will be bowed in prayers of thanksgiving; sons and daughters returned from the war to the warm love of a mother's aching heart... a father's strong, silent yearning the eager adoration of younger brothers and sisters. The world at peace! Is this not reason enough for heads to be bowed in pray- of thankfulness for having lived in land lhat escaped the ravaging hand of deadly enemy a land whose brave sons and daughters fought and died that truth, humanity and righteousness might triumph over deceit, cruelty and treachery and today whose flag flies victoriously over a vanquished enemy. Truly, on this of all Thanksgivings, we have much for which to thank God! .While in this spirit of thanksgiving, let us not forget those whose loved ones will never return those boys and girls who gave their all "that this nation of the people, by the people and for the people shall not perish from the earth."
