. '- Qlxinx 'ox X Q 2 . X FAITH On its third and final departure for America in ' the year 1620, the good ship Mayflower carried the Pilgrims through the vast and unchartered turbulent waters of the Atlantic on their hazardous voyage to Plymouth Colony. Armed with slightly more than FAITH in themselves and God, they had left their homes and loved ones with a FAITH strong enough to sustain them through those first severe and trying winters in the new land -- an unwavering FAITH which was to build homes, churches and schools, clear the land, till the soil, unite the people in a mutual inter- dependence, fashion the first colonies, and give birth to a new nation with a foundation firmly enrooted in FA ITII. History tells us that years later the same FAITH made possible the revolt against arrogant rulers, hav- ing its culmination in the Boston Tea Party which fanned the flames of insurrection and kindled the spark of revolution by a Declaration of Independence, reconfirming their FAITH in the equality, liberties, and inherent rights of all men. Thus begun, with only unswerving I"AITH as a ruling guide, America's boundless wilderness was ex- plored, her deep rivers bridged, her fertile prairies and proud mountains spanned by rail and road, and a civilization reached still undreamed of by many nations of the world. , These things which today we take for granted were hard-earned by men of vision. courage. and FAITH. In recent years the world has been beset by two wars, and the upheaval and disturbed conditions that surround and follow such wide-spread catastro- phies provide the medium for distrustful thinking and a resultant lack of FAITH in other nations and other individuals. ' ' Yet, a moment's reflection on the past will show the greatness of America was built by the FAITH of individuals in God, FAITH in themselves, and FAITH in those honest men around them. This "FAITH" of which we speak made strong communities, strong sies, and a strong nation -- strong enough to survive the trials of time. But there is no standing still in the "America of Progress." and she will continue to progress through the vision, courage, and FAITH of her sons and daughters. May you be one of those who has and keeps that FAITH. owlrouunnaus Anal, nn-n 1 1-. llillln --iwnmhmm , 0 ,
