Youth Can Show the Way to Fight War
(Article from Labor Action's annual May special issue, 1951)
Youth has always been the age for freedom and strength,
for growth and creativity, for dreaming and doing. It is a
time for flexing one's muscles and holding up one's head,
for walking in the sunshine and for looking at the stars,
for expansion and soaring. It has always been this way in
literature and in art, in dream and in myth - and justly so.
But it has not always been so in reality, and it is less so
today than ever.
