Pearse with 'the strange thing that I am' noted his unusual family roots and proclaimed the 'widely remote traditions' carried by his maternal and paternal influence and also his prophecy that “There are in every generation those who shrink from the ultimate sacrifice, but there are in every generation those who make it with joy and laughter and these are the salt of the generations.”
