Peace: This is it!

From page A10 | November 08, 2013 |

* Editor’s note: The following editorial was published Aug. 17, 1945, in The Davis Enterprise:

This Is It!

PEACE! Not a partial Peace — not just a hope — not a wish — but the real thing — PEACE!

The guns are silent. The planes are grounded. The bombs drop no more. The fighting men rest — not fretfully in fear of tomorrow’s battle; theirs is a blessed rest that comes only with the realization that there are no more struggles ahead, no more long, ghastly days of ceaseless fighting, no more endless nights of turmoil and torture; no more bleeding, no more dying.

Today the overflowing hearts of soldiers and civilians alike rise in one mighty prayer of thanksgiving that the cause of Right has triumphed.

Our Nation has risen from the depths of danger into which it was suddenly plunged on that quiet Sunday morning in December nearly four years ago. Four years? Yes, four years as we measure time. But for four decades, four centuries to those who have fought and those who have been waiting for their return.

Now our men of the land and sea and air no longer look toward Tokyo. Their eyes look toward the place where their hearts and hopes have ever been — home! Home!
