Allison the Activist

Even when she was in the Bluebirds as a little girl, Allison was the leader of the pack.  – Doris Krause*

My daughter Allison was not a radical. She was a feeling, caring person who was against war in Vietnam, Cambodia, Israel, or any other place. She was not a member of a radical group, but rather acted as an individual, who felt deeply.  – Arthur Krause*

I have never met anyone who could read my mind the way she could. Sometimes I would be able to convey a complicated and complete train of thought to her without uttering a word. She used to smile at me and say, "I know what you are thinking," and she would get it exactly. – Barry Levine*

"Flowers are better than bullets."  -- Allison
