Williams, Minister. Invasion Day Service About one hundred people gathered ~n the 'Community Church for a spec- ial service of prayer for the.men tak- ing pa,rt in the Allied Invasion. The organ nmsic was by Miss Carolyn Gross and the service included the Twenty-third Psalm, the Lord's Pray- er, a Litany of SymDathy, a special arrangement of the Beatitudes for a Responsive Reading, and a reading of the World Order Compact calling for the establ:ishment of a world-wide or- ganization for the preservation of peace. There were prayers foIa the men and women on the b~ttle fronts, for the leaders of our nation, the President of the United States amd the officers who are in command. The following poem was also read and some have asked that it be print- ed in the Islander: The Young Dead Soldiers The young dead soldiers do not speak. Nevertheless they are heard in the still houses (Who has not heard them?) They have a silence tl~at speaks for them at night And when the clock counts. They say, We were young. We have died. Remember us. They say We have done what we could But until it is finished it is not done They say, We have given our lives But until it is finished no one can know what our lives gave They say, Our deaths are not ours, They are yours, They will mean what you make them They say, Whether our lives and our deaths were for peace and a new hope--~r for nothing We cannot say. It is you who must say this They Say, We leave you our deaths. Give them their meaning. Give them an end to the war and a true peace, Give them a victory that ends the war and a peace afterwards, Give them their meaning. rvV;e were young, they say. We have died. Remember us.
