Preserve the real things

"We would do well in a world like ours, to go back to the simple thankfulness for the things that make a family life possible. I am thankful for the things we still have, despite the atom bomb. The terrible ingenuity of man may wipe us out in time to come, but now, we still have the sun, and the clear deep blue of the sky, and the white glory of the stars, and the loving-kindness of friends, just as our forefathers had. If only we can preserve the real things - the love of man and woman, the peace of an evening by the fire, the sweetness of music, and the sound of children's voices - we shall not have to hear the sound of the world disintegrating into chaos."          Gladys Taber, Book of Stillmeadow, November
