An excerpt from Connecticut Campus, May 9, 1945.

So in this moment of triumph in Europe, when human nature practically compells us to feel that the worst is over and apathy is now in order, let us stop and consider. If ever America and the world needed moral, physical, and financial support – it is now.  Now is the time to dig in the hardest for there is a long torturous road ahead.

It is so easy to delude ourselves into feeling anything we could do would make no perceptible difference, but if anything we can do even helps shorten the war by one second and save one boy’s life – it should not have been in vain.
