There’s no doubt that gun violence is a serious topic, especially when taking into consideration the tragic school shootings. As the nation grapples with yet another fatal school shooting, communities all over the country live in fear of gun violence. That’s unacceptable.
This isn’t a political issue, this is a societal issue and this should be solved by social awakening and by laws. We are not powerless, we can make a change. We need to teach nonviolence in schools. Famous spiritual master Amit Ray rightly said;
“I strongly believe that non-violence should be taught at school levels as an important subject. Specially experiments with non-violence should be taught with due importance. I urge the United Nations to play its role to spread the value of non-violence in the school levels across the world. Unless we do experiments with compassion and nonviolence, it is very difficult to understand its value and transforming power. ” — Amit Ray, Peace on the Earth A Nuclear Weapons Free World
“I would rather make mistakes in kindness and compassion than work miracles in unkindness and hardness.” –Mother Teresa
