  • All sorts of new and interesting and wonderful things were happening, and it was exciting. And then I got my head bashed in at a demonstration against the Vietnam War during a visit that Lyndon Johnson made to the Century Plaza Hotel. My girlfriend was a reporter for the London Evening Standard and we were on our way to a party, and she said, "We should check this out." So we arrived there, and soon it turned into a police riot.

It is with our capacity of smiling, breathing, and being peace that we can make peace.
