Linus Pauling: There are many ways to take action in the fight for peace. Every activity that any one of us engages in has two effects.
It brings to the participant the knowledge that he is taking a great action, that he is doing something that will affect the
future of the world. And then it has its effect on other people, encourages them to participate also in the stuggle for peace.
And so I say to you: Do away with your apathy! Don't just lie down and be Hiroshimad! Now is the time to fight for your lives
and the lives of your children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren too.
So let's take action. Let's march in peace marches, pray in vigils, beat the drums, go out in front of the RAND Corporation,
protest against Polaris, join with Bertrand Russell when he pastes up an ultimatum on the door of the government, bombard
the President, the Secretary of State, and our Senators and even Representative Hiestand with letters, urging that they get
some sense, come back to sanity. Then, even if we are vaporized, atomized, Hiroshimad, we'll know that we have done our duty
as thoughtful, sane, and high-principled men and women and children. But I believe that we can win.
