When a man gives his life for the cause he has advocated, he meets the highest test of his honesty that his own or any future generation can in fairness ask.

Ezra Dalby, 1926

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

I'm grateful for the perspective the gospel brings to both war and peace.

Each individual name reminds me that the gospel is about each individual person.
