But, just what are our expectancies for the new world? Don’t you think, for one thing, that the world is going to learn how to live together?...Don’t you think, if we have the courage to look through the present confusion, that we shall catch a vision of some fairer form, some more noble form, emerging? Let us dare to believe that unkindness and intolerance will someday vanish from the face of the earth. Let us have faith to look into the new age with expectancy that all men will find a common approach to the One God.
