The World at the Crossroads

Excerpt

Citizens of the World:

TO YOU ALL:-- the descendants of the framers of our nation, the last comers to our shores, the youth carrying the issues of today, the child inheritor of the United States, to you our government:

And to you of all other nations:--

Under all our flags we ask your consideration of a united world.

All people of all nations are in a crisis today.

All people can compare the birth of the United Nations with the beginnings of their own nations.

If each lives up to the great teachings of his own country we shall be able to create together the greater whole whose birth we contemplate.

We believe that the fundamental processes of democracy will stand the test at this crucial moment and enable the citizens of the world to unite.

We are ready to accept the common decision; to support the charter which the San Francisco Conference produced; to do all that we can throughout the world to assure its success; and to work for improvement and enrichment of life under the United Nations.

Signed

ANITA BLAINE EDWIN H. CASSELS EDWIN R. EMBREE W. W. WAYMACK QUINCY WRIGHT
