Conscientious Objector

Int'l Conscientious Objector Day

Today is International Conscientious Objector to War Day. "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 Celebrate the men and women who were brave enough to say, "No."

Love in ever-larger circles is central to Northern Spirit Radio, and we honor those with vision and heart large enough to go beyond the traditionally defined limits of "us".
