The “most trusted voice in America” is silenced now, but his message will live as an example of what news should be.
Mr. Walter Cronkite lived through and witnessed many of the most important events of the 20th Century, reporting and commenting with his authoritative and calm voice.
His now prescient pronouncement of the futility of the war in Vietnam was pivotal in bringing it to an end. He also voiced his opposition to the Iraq war. Until the end of his life, he was a strong defender of justice and peace.
We, at Nuclear Age Peace Foundation were very fortunate and honored to have benefited from his wisdom and experience in our Advisory Council. We will miss him and we will continue the mission of his ardent wish for a nuclear weapons free World.
And that’s the way it will continue to be, Uncle Walter.

Rubén Arvizu is the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation’s Director for Latin America.
