The Art Of Non-Violence

The kinds of people I admire are people like Nelson Mandela, William Wilberforce, and Jesus Christ to name a few. To me, it takes a lot of strength and courage to stand in the face of any kind of opposition and have the presence of mind to not strike back. It’s a kind of strength that I pray for every day because I know quite frankly that I do not have it.

I pray that if I should ever face any hardship or opposition for who I am and what I believe, that I will the grace and dignity to live my life for myself and the things that are important to me, without raising a finger to harm anyone else.
