May 2017 Newsletter

“We must inoculate our children against militarism by educating them in the spirit of pacifism…Our schoolbooks glorify war and conceal its horrors. They indoctrinate children with hatred.  I would teach peace rather than war, love rather than hate."

                                                                               Albert Einstein
