    This is written by Peter E. Terzick

    What is brotherhood? It is the wisdom of Lincoln
    and the warmth of Gandhi.
    It is the humility of Jesus, the humbleness of
    Mohammed, and the humanitarnism
    of Confucius. It is Catholic and Protestant and
    Jew living together in peacefulness
    and harmony. It is Italian and dane and Bulgarian
    and Pole working side by side on the
    job and sitting shoulder to shoulder in the union
    hall searching for ways to advance the
    common good. It is the Ten Commandments and
    the Sermon on the Mount. It is the
    Bible, the Talmud, and the Koran. It is the essence
    Of all wisdom of all the ages Distilled
    into a single word. But equally it is the understanding
    of neighbors and friends who sorrow
    at your misfortunes and rejoice at your triumphs.
    You cannot see Brotherhood; neither
    can you hear it nor taste it. But you can feel it a
    Hundred times a day!!!
