He that outlives this day

November 12, 2022. The weather will be mostly cloudy and cool, with a brief shower. 

The sweater will temporarily leave the cabinet on the first floor of Wilson Hall and travel with the Fords to Episcopal’s campus. The sweater will stay there for a few hours—but no more than a few hours—before it is rightly returned to the cabinet outside Mr. Casertano’s office. 

At night, it will be forty degrees Fahrenheit, with RealFeal temperature estimated at thirty-two degrees Fahrenheit, the freezing point of water. There may be rain. There may be a thunderstorm. That night, men without a good sweater will freeze.

While men of Haverford blaze in gold and maroon, men of EA will freeze. 

For years, EA Day and the EA Week exemplify Haverford’s fine athleticism and spirit of camaraderie. New third formers will feel their first true bond with the community. Sixth Formers will cheer with mighty ardor at the front bench of the games. 

We will temper and forge a true brotherhood. 

From this day to the ending of the world,

But we in it shall be remembered—

We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;

For he today that sheds his blood with me

Shall be my brother.

Shakespeare, Henry V, 4.3.58-62
