Hope Endures

Saturday, Apr. 24, 1943

Today Abe and Lois boarded the train in Pennsylvania Station for the trip back to Chicago. They were surely exhausted from the round of visits and disheartened at the news from the Bermuda Conference and the Warsaw Ghetto. Glancing at newspapers in Pennsylvania Station, they would have seen the headlines: more Allied success against Rommel in Tunisia, an advance base for an invasion of Japan established in the Gilbert Islands. I believe they were still hopeful. For how can you be anything but hopeful when you are about to become a family? They didn’t care whether I was Daniel or Susie so long as they could guarantee me a better world than one they were seeing around them.
