“Nonviolence means avoiding not only external physical violence but also internal violence of spirit. You not only refuse to shoot a man, but you refuse to hate him.” ~Martin Luther King, Jr.
Victor Frankl once said, “When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.” We challenge you today to change the way you react to violence and hostility. It’s time to care about ourselves and our communities. Gun violence isn’t someone else’s problem – It’s ours!
Give us your solution to end violence in our communities.
