Indianapolis Indiana Jewish Post (Newspaper) - May 29, 1964, Indianapolis, Indiana15c per copy published weekly jewish Post a Quot if you let the people know they can act in Indiana edition me 4-1307 Friday May 29, 1964 the ugh 34-vx8 in Vioni volume a aivp.j�. 38 $7 per yeas of rabbi Davis Speaks at memorial service Quot Many Are the moods and varied the emotions upon memorial Day ranging All the Way from Pride to sorrow from tribute to regret a rabbi Maurice Davis said last sunday during the "500 festival memorial service on the Steps of the Indiana War memorial. Quot for me the message of this moment consists of two words Only. Those words my friends Are grief and shame grief when we re Pember those who died and shame when we remember Why. Quot the men who died in All our wars these were not soldiers born and bred to Battle. These were husbands and fathers sons and Brothers leaving widows and orphans and parents filled with pain. These were the Flower four youth the Promise of a tomorrow that never came. What they have done what might they have accomplished. Quot one of them might have found a cure for cancer who died instead a victim of. This moral cancer of Mankind. One might have composed a Melody so Beautiful it would have thrilled the world. He died instead to the Distant beat of trumpet and drum. One might have painted a picture written a poem discovered an answer Learned a truth. One might have found the path that leads to peace who died instead along the Road of War. Quot How Many Shakespeare Milton einsteins died in Battle this we shall never know and this is the chilling question Mark that adds now to our grief. A now Why was it that they died they died because Man kind is weak untutored and unwise. They died because Mankind with All its vaunted Progress has not yet Learned to live. A this May not be a Day to search for answers but a by god a it is a Day to speak the truth the truth my friends the truth unmasked is this. Memorial Day is the Monument we build to Man s enormous Folly. And our beloved dead who died were victims of that Folly. They were a he sacrifices that we offered at the altar of the god of War As yet Man s most immortal god. Quot let us not demean the Day nor Dishonour the dead with pious platitudes. Let us not hide the truth with arrogant accusations by which to shed our guilt and place the blame upon some faceless enemy. The names of friends and foes Are Many and they keep changing interchanging All the time. The truth is that along with All Mankind we share the shame of hatred enmity and War. A can we not share As Well the path that leads to peace is that too much to ask too great a Promise to the dead who died or is it too wild a dream to be believed i believe i believe with perfect Faith that peace is real and that peace is realizable. Quot let this be our Faith and let this be cur pledge. Out of our grief out of our shame let this be our Promise to the past and to the future. Then let us join together hand and heart to shape tomorrow and to make the dream come True a rabbi Davis said.
