Courage, determination, and creative initiative, coupled with sound reasoning, will be required to meet the challenges of this era.

These changes which present challenges also bring opportunities and privileges. Accompaning these privileges is a responsibility for making a dynamic contribution to human society. My challenge to you then is to go forth to serve thy country and thy Maker in a manner which will widen your economic, social, and spiritual horizons. E.N.
