Here is an interview with Dan from 2009, in which he looks back on his long life with gratitude: http://americamagazine.org/issue/702/article/looking-back-gratitude
An overview of his life from the "Jesuits East" magazine: http://www.jesuitseast.org/story-section?
Dan was also an immense support to me as a brother Jesuit. I relied a great deal on his advice regarding the careful balance between the demands of justice and fidelity, particularly when it came to speaking out on controversial topics. At one point, many years ago, when I was thinking about speaking out on a controversial issue without asking formal permission from my superiors (that is, presuming permission rather than requesting it), he wrote to me and said, "Remember you're in this for the long haul." Dan took his commitment to his Jesuit vows as seriously as he did his commitment to peace and justice.
"Blessed are the peacemakers," said Jesus. So blessed was Dan, and blessed were we to have lived with him.
May he rest in the peace.

"Protest beyond the law is not a departure from democracy; it is absolutely
What we choose to emphasize in this complex history will determine our lives. If we see only the worst, it destroys our capacity to do something. If we remember those times and places—and there are so many—where people have behaved magnificently, this gives us the energy to act and at least the possibility of sending this spinning top of a world in a different direction...And if we do act, in however small a way, we don't have to wait for some grand utopian future. The future is an infinite succession of presents and to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory." -- Howard Zinn
