Voice of the Day: Betty Williams

By Administrator 12-06-2006

We are deeply, passionately dedicated to the cause of nonviolence, to the force of truth and love, to soul-force. To those who say that we are naive, utopian idealists, we say that we are the only realists, and that those who continue to support militarism in our time are supporting the progress towards total self-destruction of the human race.

- Betty Williams, in her 1976 Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech
