Quotes: “The Concert for Peace could not come at a more important time. Wars are devastating Europe and the Middle East. Conflict seems to be everywhere. I know from firsthand experience that in war, the most powerful weapon is not the gun or the bomb but the mind that sees other human beings as enemies, less than human, the Other – and lets us pull the trigger or push the button.” William Broyles, Jr.
