Still True 100 Years Later

No longer ought we to be called upon to be particeps criminis with men to the extent of being compelled to pay taxes which are largely used for the support of the army and navy.

Moreover, a recourse to war as a means of righting wrongs is full of peril to the whole human race. Not only are bodies killed, but the ideals which alone make life worth living are for the time being lost to sight. In place of those finer attributes of our nature--compassion, gentleness, forgiveness—are substituted hatred, revenge and cruelty.

~ Mrs. Henry Willard, President of Women's Peace Conference, 1915 ~
