Lenore Gould Breslauer

LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Lenore Gould Breslauer, whose protest of the Vietnam war helped lead to the founding of Another Mother for Peace with its well-remembered motto ``War is not healthy for children and other living things,″ died Friday of lung cancer. She was 80.

At the height of the Vietnam War, her group’s motto and sunflower insignia were nearly ubiquitous on posters found on college campuses and in college dorms around the country.

Breslauer co-founded Another Mother for Peace with six friends during a time when her son, Jon Gould, was nearing the age of military service and young men in this country were still being drafted into the Army.
