disposal of mankind. It is mightier than the mightiest weapon of
destruction devised by the ingenuity of man.”
Jesus, The Prophet - Muhammad, Yahweh, Gandhi, King, the
Buddha, Krishna, and many other sages of the past attempted to
teach the world that nonviolence was the key to both inner peace
and global peace. Are we, as people, able to make it a way of life,
to strive for, so that, as author Louise Diamond wrote, “nonviolence
becomes our natural path?” Are we able to commit ourselves to
nonviolence? Are we able to utilize nonviolence to stop war? Many
people believe the answer is yes. They are willing to test to see the
strength of nonviolence by setting an example. They are willing to
sacrifice and most likely suffer.
There is a power and strength in nonviolence. Nonviolence can
empower people and eliminate fear! If hundreds, or thousands, or
millions of people are together, they will not be afraid. They will
feel secure. They will still be danger, but there will be the strength of
many, a “critical mass." Gandhi said, “Given the proper training and proper generalship,
non-violence can be practiced by the masses of mankind.”
We need to practice nonviolence as individuals and as societies. But, not just practice,
we must exhibit it so that others see it and know they are not alone.
Nonviolence - We have to say it and we have to act it
Following a nonviolent path is difficult, requires sacrifice,
and often involves confronting mortality; but it is possible.
OATH OF NONVIOLENCE

To set an example of non-violence
There is a stereotype that women are less violent. Stereotypes
are based on truth. The women of the world have a strength to
offer that is currently not being utilized. If that strength exists, why
not use it?
Set an Example - Prototype
“With respect, we, the women of the world are declaring that we
will not allow war in the world and we will intervene with every
NON-VIOLENT means possible to prevent it or stop it! We do this
“For the Children.”
The proclamation says, Stop the Next War Now, and “Women Say
No To War.” With every declaration is a statement of nonviolence.
MLK said, “…choice is either nonviolence or nonexistence.”
Father John Dear wrote, while in India researching Gandhi, “In all
his words, one theme persisted. Whatever crisis or catastrophe
presented itself, Gandhi offered the same answer: steadfast,
persistent, dedicated, committed, relentless, truthful, prayerful,
loving, active, creative nonviolence.”
A “Global Strategy of Nonviolence” is a commitment to nonviolence, something everyone
can relate to.
Is a nonviolent initiative able to be implemented by the people, in each country of the
Would people do this for themselves? Would people do it for the children?
A “Global Strategy of Nonviolence” states that the time has come for nonviolence to be
the focus of all societies and countries.
Most people do not want to see or hear about people killing each other or at each others
throats. We have to find a way to make peace.
