Tim Gee tells the story of why he became a pacifist and what it means to him. Gee reflects on the lives of peacemakers past and present to provide responses to questions like "Don't we have to hit back if we're hurt?", "Don't we need war to respond to evil?" and "Doesn't religion justify wars?". This is a critique of war, but more than that, it stakes a claim for pacifism's feminist and anti-racist qualities. This is a call for a more nonviolent world.
