I attributed a lovely portion of a speech to an unknown author from around the time of WWI. I made a mistake. It was part of an address delivered by Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. for Memorial Day, May 30, 1884, at Keene, NH, before John Sedgwick Post No. 4, Grand Army of the Republic. Holmes was a Chief Justice of the Supreme Court and a famous jursit. He was most proud of his service during the Civil War and wanted to be buried at Arlington. His grave is not far from John Kennedy’s. Anyway the name of the speech was entitled “In Our Youth Our Hearts Were Touched With Fire”.
