While pondering what to put together for "All of Us or None: Responses and Resistance to Militarism," I stumbled upon this quote by Albert Camus, the French author and philosopher, that clearly illustrates the futility of using violence as a means to an end. The simple aesthetic is reminiscent of the abstract cover art of Camus's books.
Tyler Heston is a 21 year old Memphian and is currently a senior at the University of Memphis, studying Religion in Society. Although he's not sure what he wants to do with his life, he plans on going back to graduate school eventually and wants to partner with an organization fighting for social justice on some front. His spiritual community is the Friends of Jesus Fellowship, a Quaker-rooted network of communities across the country. He understands that violence begets violence and hopes to see a day when peace and "justice roll down like water and righteousness like a mighty stream."
