refuse to fight

(hydrangea)

God has made of one blood all nations under heaven. No man can suddenly become my enemy just because he happened to have been born on the other side of a river or a boundary line, and his government has issued an ultimatum against mine. Is it not time that we refused to fight?

~ Muriel Lester ~

social reformer and pacifist (1883-1968)
