KEEP YOUR HOPE ALIVE
The world is full of hopes and expectations that motivate men and women. Some of these hopes prove illusory and empty when time has passed. Some men put their hopes in fading realities. I am reminded of the dramatic speech of Douglas McArthur some 30 plus years ago when he addressed the joint houses of Congress after returning from Korea (at Harry Truman’s sudden behest). His memorable speech included these sad lines: “I am closing my 52 years of military service. When I joined the Army, even before the turn of the century, it was the fulfillment of all my boyish hopes and dreams. The world has turned over many times since I took the oath on the plain at West Point and the hopes and dreams have long since vanished.”
