The objective of A Season for Nonviolence each year has been to
create an awareness of nonviolent principles and practice as a powerful
way to heal, transform and empower lives and communities. Through
an educational and community action campaign, the season recognizes
those who are using nonviolence to build a community that honors the
dignity and worth of every human being. By identifying “what works” in
these new models for reconciliation and human harmony, the season
demonstrates that every person can move the world in the direction of
peace through their daily nonviolent choices and actions.

In honor of the 64 days between the memorial anniversaries, Daily Commitments to Live By have been created to encourage self-reflection and provide valuable educational opportunities for our community.
Here are the Daily Commitments for March 22 - 28:
"Today, I will hold no one hostage to the past, seeing each as I see myself - a work in progress."
"Today, I will make a conscious effort to smile at someone whom I have held a grudge against in the past."
"Today, I will practice compassion and forgiveness by apologizing to someone whom I have hurt in the past."
"Today, I will refelect on whom I need to forgive and take at least one step in that direction."
"Today, I will forgive myself."
"Today, I will embrace the spiritual belief of my heart in my own personal and reflective way."
"Today. I will enlarge my capacity to embrace differences and appreciate the value of every human being."
