[Of Special Interest to Young People]

The world conditions today often seem especially frustrating to youth. Young people complain that their education, careers, and home plans are interrupted because of war and threats of war. Many young men and women volunteer or are called into the service of their country. Much is heard of military basic training. Some speak of it in awe, others with resentment or fear, and still others approach this experience with confidence, expecting to put their best into it and to get the most possible satisfaction from it.

Among those who are likely to approach this experience without resentment are the students of Christian Science who have already had basic training in the Christian Science Sunday School in an understanding of the realities of life and man's relation to Life, God. They have gained in some measure a practical and demonstrable understanding of the omnipotence and omnipresence of the all-loving Father-Mother, God. Thus when they enter military service, they find this spiritual understanding of inestimable value. For instance, though it is necessary for them to submit to "physicals," vaccinations, and "shots," these young men and women have the opportunity to prove that the real man is not subject to the so-called laws of matter; that matter has no intelligence to claim sensation; that since God, good, is All-in-all, matter is unreal, powerless, nothing.
