Pacifist

[pas-uh-fist](n.) a person who believes in pacifism or is opposed to war or to violence.

From the Latin pacificus, meaning “peaceful, peace-making.”

“From pacifist to terrorist, each person condemns
violence—and then adds one cherished case in which it may be justified.”

~Gloria Steinem
