Peace Activist Daniel Berrigan Dies

Reverend Daniel Berrigan, a prominent peace activist during the Vietnam War, passed away at the age of 94 on Saturday. He was imprisoned in the 1960s for burning draft files to protest the war, becoming a household name as a result. It's unclear what the specific cause of his death was, but he had reportedly had a "long illness." Berrigan's poetry and protests helped shape the way in the which Americans opposed the war.
