The Demand for Sacrifice

From the March 13, 1943 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel

Governments of the United Nations are asking citizens to make sacrifices for the common cause in winning a war against aggression—sacrifices in the interests of freedom and democracy. Sacrifices for such a purpose are laudable, since they not only bring home the useful lesson that being unselfish for a righteous cause is markedly beneficial, but draw neighbors closer together in an atmosphere of good will and mutual understanding.
