Wally Nelson died on May 23 at the age of 93. Freedom rider, conscientious objector, war tax resister, farmer, tireless dancer, and nonviolent activist. He leaves many friends, and wife Juanita Nelson, to continue the struggle for a more peaceful and just world.
"Nonviolence is the constant awareness of the dignity and humanity of oneself and others; it seeks truth and justice; it renounces violence both in method and in attitude; it is a courageous acceptance of active love and goodwill as the instrument with which to overcome evil and transform both oneself and others. It is the willingness to undergo suffering rather than inflict it. It excludes retaliation and flight." - Wally Nelson
