Lisa Perez Tout

"Born in the 1970s, I was brought up to "Buy the World A Coke" and prevent forest fires and Give a Hoot. I was taught in public school classes and recited The Pledge of Allegiance where the phrase "One nation under God" was never questioned. My early years spanned from Sesame Street to The Brady Bunch and my Charlie's Angels lunchbox. Later, I'd want my MTV, Say No! To Drugs and get all of my morals from Afterschool Specials. Unbeknownst to me, without my official consent or awareness, I was being taught from an early age to be a pacifist."
