Happy Birthday to Joan Baez, Nonviolent Soldier

“I would say that I am a nonviolent soldier. In place of weapons of violence, you have to use your mind, your heart, your sense of humor, every faculty available to you… because no one has the right to take the life of another human being. That’s all nonviolence is – organized love.”
— Joan Baez
