Nonviolence does not seek to defeat or humiliate the opponent, but to win his friendship and understanding. The end of nonviolence is redemption and reconciliation. The aftermath of nonviolence is the creation of the beloved community, while the aftermath of violence is tragic bitterness.
Nonviolence is a way of life for courageous individuals. It is a proactive declaration of war against evil & injustice. Courage is the inner resolution to go forward in spite of obstacles and frightening situations.
