"War will exist until that distant day when the conscientious objector enjoys the same reputation and prestige that the warrior does today."
-John F. Kennedy
While a little ironic considering how much JFK elevated things in the Vietnam War (though Lyndon Baines Johnson messed things up royally later) but I like this quote. Every Veteran's Day, Americans thank the soldiers for their service, and I'm sure this is a common occurrence for every country in the world for their own military men. But the "unpopular" voices who protest war, they're never thanked. They don't have a holiday or a celebration. They don't get medals or awards. But many of them have saved more soldier and civilian lives than you might realize.
