SMITH The Great Society" is a lofty thought and phrase that will be a historical topic i~i years to come. A comparison of past and present societies might he in order - now For example - "the Pilgrims lived in difficult times. They dared not even hope for the soft comforts of our present day conveniences. But, they were humble and proud in their priceless possession of faith. In spite of their deprivations, theirs was a "Great Society" because God was in their midst, in their minds and hearts. In comparison, it would seem there can not be and will not be a "Great Society" in any community of greed or Godlessness, No sweet conversation can develop a "Great Society" as long as mild curiosity, indifference, insincere lip service or sour skepticism toward spiritual needs exist. There can only be a successful pilgrimage on the Glory Road to- ward a ~'Great Society" when we hear and heed the Voice that warns us to detour around the danger ~the Voice that tells us of the risks in seeking materiallstics at the cost of losing our souls along the way SMITH & STRIDER MEMORIAL FUNERAL HOME CHARLES TOWN, WEST VIRGINIA Route 340 East CHARLES TOWN, W.
