Frances Crowe anti nuclear peace activist
I just came back from the 95th birthday celebration for the unstoppable peace activist Francis Crowe, hosted at Umass by Amy Goodman of Democracy now. Francis was glowing.It felt good to be in a packed house, all there for the same reasons. Not just to give recognition to Francis, and to hear Amy dish out the facts, but to celebrate ourselves and our community, and a common mission of trying bring some god damn sense back into the world. It’s all out there, happening now. All we need are more people like Francis in the trenches and Amy on the airwaves, and an independent, uncompromisable media. A voice of the people, by the people, to tell the real story. As Amy said,” Americans are compassionate, when they hear the truth”.
