The Light of Idealism
Lower your weapon, the hospital is a neutral territory. The light of the Red Cross can cut through any darkness of brutality or violence. The Red Cross was founded in 1881 by Clara Barton. In 1905 Congress issued a charter to the Red Cross to "carry on a system of national and international relief in time of peace and apply the same in mitigating the sufferings caused by pestilence, famine, fire, floods, and other great national calamities."
