The strength of our democracy is no greater than the collective well-being of our people. The vigor of our county is no stronger than the vitality and will of all our countrymen. The level of physical, mental, moral, and spiritual fitness of every American citizen must be our constant concern.
The need for increased attention to the physical fitness of our youth is clearly established. The writer believes that today's young people are fundamentally healthier than the youth of previous generations. However, the majority have not developed strong, agile bodies. The softening process of our civilization continues to carry on its persistent erosion. It is of great importance, then, that we as physical educators take immediate steps to ensure that every American child be given the opportunity to make and keep himself physically fit-fit to learn, fit to understand, to grow in grace and stature, to fully live.
