"The problems which confronts us today are, equally, unprecedented.  They have no counterparts in human experience.  Men search the pages of history for solutions, for precedents, but there is none. 


This, then, is the ultimate challenge.  Where are we to look for our survival, for the answers to the questions which have never before been posed?


We must look, first, to Almighty God, Who has raised man above the animals and endowed him with intelligence and reason.  We must put our faith in HIM that He will not desert us or permit us to destroy humanity which He created in His image.

And we must look into ourselves, into the depth of our souls.  We must become something we have never been and for which our education and experience and environment have ill-prepared us.  We must become bigger than we have been: more courageous, greater in spirit, larger in outlook.  We must become members of a new race, overcoming petty prejudice, owing our ultimate allegiance not to nations but to our fellow men within the human community.  (Important Utterances of H.I.M. p. 471)
