Names Written in the Sand The majority of people today are writing their names in sand, rather than writing them in the bedrock of history. But what do we mean by “writing our names in sand?” We mean living such lives and doing such deeds as will not abide. We mean that anyone who lives this life with self in front, anyone who lives a self-centered life, with no regard for his fellowman, deliberately writes his name in the shifting sand. And the ocean of time and eternity will roll on, sweeping his name and memory of his selfish life into oblivion. We are to be the citizens of to- morrow, citizens in the greatest country in the world. Our forefathers in finding this country were not thinking of self. They were thinking of God, of liberty, and of their fellowman. They were building for the future, not for the present only. Are we going to dishonor the traditions and memory of our grandsires by giving self the first place in life? A nation’s greatness can not be made by people who write their names in the sand. A nation is made great by people who write their names in abiding rock. For the final proof of a nation’s greatness is not found in its unequaled wealth, nor in its commercial supremacy, nor its physical luxuries, but in the moral and mental metal of its manhood and womanhood — in the greatness and goodness of its people. This is the final test, both of individuals and of nations — and thus, he who writes his name into his country’s life writes his name in abiding rock, not in shifting sand. The American sage who wrote the poem entitled “The Nation’s Greatness” knew the secret of true great- ness and glory when he wrote: “ What builds a nation ' s pillars high And its foundations strong ? What makes it mighty to defy The foes that round it throng. Brave men who work while others steep, Who dare while others fly — They build a nation ' s pillars deep And lift them to the sky.” We may write our names on the pages of history by working with a zeal unhindered and unchanged by opposition and ob- struction. So, make your life work one that goes as far in benefit of your fellowman as for yourself. Charles Dean, ’24.
