We could use another Dorothy Day, but I doubt that's what Brooks has in mind.

I'm a bit disappointed I never heard of her until now. Quite a life, judging from her wikipedia bio.

    Day made her last public appearance at the Eucharistic Congress held on August 6, 1976, in Philadelphia at a service honoring the U.S. Armed Forces on the Bicentennial of the United States. She spoke about reconciliation and penance, and castigated the organizers for failing to recognize that for peace activists August 6 is the day the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, an inappropriate day to honor the military.
