USE OTHER SIDE ALSO the staff and clear up a few little odds and ends when 1 noticed the letters that had started coming in—thousands and thousands of them. One day I went in anil there was a whole bale that the postman had brought in—a whole bale! You can'l imagine how many letters it takes to make a bale! I was just overcome. I had three girls working in shifts. There 1 was reading the letters and throwing them away— answering maybe two or three out of a hundred. You can imagine voices coming oul uf your past when you were young—boys and girls I had been to grammar school with at Public School 41 in Brooklyn that I did not even remember until I saw their names teachers I held in grammar school or in prep school senile were blind people or old people that said they had to write; well, those were the ones I was answering. I began to feel lhe impact of what was happening and I suddenly realized thai I was in the midst of a great spiritual force thai had been released. It's hard to explain it to you, but I am going to try with a few illustrations. Those letters were so close—they were so intimate—over a thousand of them were signed by the man and his wife together. I received letters from little shops—nol so much from the bankers and big businessmen and big judges and all that, but all the little fellows that make up America. Their voices came to me. They wanted me to know what the name of each one was. what his job was. whal be weis doing, and were they telling me lhal I was a greal fellow?- oh, no!—they were telling me that they loved America and that they understood American justice; lhal they knew that withoul American jusl ice. without the firm and fair administration of justice, that America could not exist. All our liberties, all our rights, all those precious tilings that we have are nothing unless the judges and the courts will sustain tin-in and give them life, and all these people eill over America, all these so-called liltle fellows, they knew that. They knew it better than some of the big ones, and thev were telling me. One telegram came from all the patients in a hospital they all had their names on. and each one of the nurses put her name on it too. They didn't say the nurses in such and such a hospital, but Mary Jones, Mary Smith and so on. and it got over to Western Union and all the Western Union girls signed up too. 1 hey eill wanted me to know that each one of them individually cared. I don't know whether you have been to see this movie called "Lily" where the girl goes to the puppet show and she is singing lo the puppets thai nobodv cares. This is a circus picture and the audience is there watching her and they're so affected b\ het little song thai one will say. '"I care" and another "I care. 1 care."' Well, that is what I heard from eill over America, these millions of people represented by the thousands who wrote to me were saving "I care. 1 care for America. I care for Vmerican justice." I wenl through an experience I will always be grateful for—not just for the letters but for the wav people have treated me since [hen. . . . And so. there was born in my head the knowledge of what 1 call the spiritual quality oj justice, ll is a wonderful thing. When I got to thinking aboul a spiritual quality of justice, ii weis onlv ;i step to wonder what is a spiritual force anyway? Surely it is nol restricted to going to church eunl saying one's prayers. Oh no! It must be differenl from that, although it includes it. and so I slipped along to the notion of good will. Love thy neighbor as thyself follow the golden rule, use good will toward everyone else thai is something we iini3t do. Our destiny as a nation will not depend upon bombs or upon material wealth or upon our greal production, but upon our spiritual resources and their development. We- ein- rich above all the nations on the i^>c of the earth in those spiritual qualities. They are our heritage. We gol them from our forefathers. They are the things llieit spell our destiny.
