Speaking for Peace

 

Archbishop Oscar Romero

"Peace is not the product of terror or fear.
Peace is not the silence of cemeteries.
Peace is not the silent result of violent repression.
Peace is the generous,
tranquil contribution of all
to the good of all.
Peace is dynamism.
Peace is generosity.
It is right and it is duty"

-Archbishop Oscar Romero

         

 

                   Cesar Chavez       

"You know, if people are not pacifists, it's not their fault. It's because society puts them in that spot. You've got to  change it."

"You don't just change a man   -  you've got to change his environment 
as you do it."

- Cesar Chavez

 Mahatma Gandhi

“When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love has always won. There have been tyrants and murderers and for a time they seem invincible but in the end, they always fall — think of it, always!”

"It is better to be violent, if there is violence in our hearts, than to put on the cloak of nonviolence to cover impotence."

- Mahatma Gandhi


Reverand Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  

"I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality... I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word."

- Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
