Vari.

It would be impossible for men to go through what men are going through on the battlefields of Europe and struggle through the present dark night of their terrible contest if it were not that they saw, or thought that they saw, the broadening of light where the morning should come up and believed that they were standing each on his side for some eternal principle of right.

Then all about them, all about us, there sits the silent, waiting tribunal which is going to utter the ultimate judgment upon this struggle, the great tribunal of the opinion of the world; and I fancy I see, I hope that I see, I pray that it may be that I do truly see, great spiritual forces lying waiting for the outcome of this war to assert themselves, which are, indeed, asserting themselves even now to enlighten our judgment and steady our spirits.

No man is wise enough to pronounce judgment, but we can all hold our spirits in readiness to accept the truth when it dawns on us and is revealed to us in the outcome of this titanic struggle.

WOODROW WILSON 1
