Americans Who Tell the Truth
Frances Crowe (born March 15, 1919) is an American peace activist and pacifist from the Pioneer Valley of Western Massachusetts.
"Once people believed in human sacrifice --- not any more. Once people believed in slavery --- not any more. Once people believed that women should not vote --- not any more. In your lifetime I hope your children can say: Once people believed in war as the answer --- not any more."
- Frances Crowe -
Renowned American peace activist, Frances Crowe was born in 1919. Deeply moved by the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in World War II, Crowe has since dedicated her life to abolishing war. As an older person, she continues to speak out against armed conflict. She says her only fear is being indifferent to the suffering of others.
