There is not much that an individual can do in time of great general catastrophe, such as the mass horror of war. But even then, the hope and faith of an existence higher than the present one is not without its value. At such times one must lean back, draw a deep breath, and remark as Abraham Lincoln did during the blackest hours of the U.S. Civil War: "This too will pass."
