We'll forsake corporate greed and nuclear weapons. We'll refuse to be silent or passive or afraid or complicit with the world of violence. We'll get involved, and give our lives so that every human being on the planet can live in peace with justice, with food, housing, healthcare, education, employment, and dignity.
