  • Joan Baez

    "The point of nonviolence is to build a strong newfloor beneath which we can no longer sink; a platformwhich stands a few feet above napalm, torture,exploitation, poison gas, A and H bombs, [and] theworks. Give a man a decent place to stand. He’s beenwallowing around in human blood and vomit and burntflesh screaming how it’s going to bring peace to theworld". The words of folk singer and peace activistJoan Baez from her first memoir Daybreak.
