“End the war before it ends you”

"End the war before it ends you” is a peace slogan that has been printed on many images. “I’m sending you back, son, and I hope we end the war before it ends you” is a line in the 1936 play Johnny Johnson (the biography of a common man) by Paul Green.

One popular image of someone holding an “END THE WAR BEFORE IT ENDS YOU” sign is apparently from the “March on the Pentagon” on October 21, 1967, to end the Vietnam War.

‘END THE WAR BEFORE IT ENDS YOU’
Thousands march on Washington in 1967 to protest the Vietnam War

Just 50 years ago, thousands gathered in protest of a war that was killing thousands.1

On Oct. 21, 1967, upwards of 100,000 protesters assembled in Washington, D.C. to challenge the Vietnam War. About half the protesters marched all the way to the Pentagon, fighting for an end to the bloody battle that was currently taking place. Once they reached the Pentagon, 35,000 participated in a massive protest.
