ERE HANGS a plaque Wood and palnt hung on a wall We have glanced at
It often passlng through the halls we have seen new names added Yet
perhaps 1tS meanmg IS not clear to us
ThlS 1S the honor roll On It are commemorated the names of those former
Manhattan Hlgh School students and teachers whose IIVCS have been taken IH war
The 11st IS lncxeasmg It has more than doubled s1nce last year Thele w1ll be more
The plaque IS too mater1al1st1c It IS when we look beyond the plaque to 1tS
full meanlng and 1ts demandxng challenge that the true value IS seen
FOI these are the names of Amer1can boys Bemg Amer1can boys they were dxs
t1nct 1nd1v1duals Each was an entlrely dlfferent character from the next d1f
telent outwaxdly at least
Yet ln one 1espect there was an essentlal sameness to these lost heroes In them
was enshuned a Splflt They went unquestlonlngly Had you asked them they
could not have expla1ned Yet It was there It IS a pr1de 1n thelr country a re
spect 101 the decent clean th1ngs of l1fe an everburnlng love of freedom It IS the
VISIOH of a free wo1ld a wo1 ld r1d of the blackness of hatred and death a happy
wo1 ld IH peace
Th6lIS IS the P1106 of v1cto1y and thelrs IS the challenge for us who remaln
It IS a challenge to lnsure for them that the world they fought and dled
to attaln shall become a reallty
Youth 1nher1ts th1s challenge Youth of hlgh school age must stand respon
s1ble to help 1n then' flght, and when the struggle at last ends, a freshly matured
youth, through educat1on and experlence, must stand prepared to guarantee a bet
tel, peaceful unlverse
That IS our duty to them That 1S the meanmg of the plaque
