“It is difficult for the citizens of America, having never seen their country devastated by war to really understand and appreciate the full horrors of war and the absolute necessity for bending all our efforts to preventing another and even more disastrous conflict.

– Susan Sontag, editor, The Arcade (student newspaper of North
Hollywood High School), 1948. This piece, on the subject of Armistice Day, was written by Sontag at the age of 15.
