It's always sad to see young men die, because one thinks always of the many things they left undone. They had visions of marriage and a happy family; they wanted to teach their sons and see them grow up and honor them; they wanted to live in peace and prosper.
Don't throw away your lives! You can't fight against our vast equipment and endless supplies and resources. Come over to us, and then when peace comes soon you will do all the things which are in your heart. You will be reborn, and with that rebirth will come great happiness and contentment.
The world is vast and good. You are too young to die now.
