Forgive me for my agnosticism;For I shall try to keep it gentle, not cynical,
Nor a bad influence.
If thou art truly in the heavens,
Accept my gratitude
For all thy gifts
And I shall try
To fight the good fight. Amen.
John Gunther, Jr., a student at Deerfield Academy, died in 1949 at the age of 17 from a brain tumor.
