… from the late Howard Zinn, once active and now honorary member of Veterans For Peace.
“Memorial Day should be a day for putting flowers on graves and planting trees. Also, for destroying the weapons of death that endanger us more than they protect us, that waste our resources and threaten our children and grandchildren.”
This Op-Ed from Howard Zinn appeared in the Boston Globe on June 2, 1976, after which his regular column in that paper was canceled.
Our favorite Howard Zinn quote:
“There is no flag large enough to cover the shame of killing innocent people.”
