Day 9 of 64 Days of Non-Violence: Dreaming

Tuesday, February 7, 2012 – Day 9 of 64:  Dreaming

Martin Luther King, Jr. had a great dream. What is your dream for peace? Write it down. What is one thing you can do to honor your dreams? Do it today.

64 Ways to Practice Non-Violence

Inspired by the 50th & 30th memorial anniversaries of Mahatma Gandhi and Dr.  Martin Luther King, Jr. this international event honors their vision for a nonviolent world. A Season for Nonviolence, is a national 64-day educational, media, and grassroots campaign dedicated to demonstrating that nonviolence is a powerful way to heal, transform, and empower our lives and our communities.
There were 64 Days between the assignation anniversaries of Mahatma Gandhi (Jan 30, ) and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. April 4th, ). This was designated as the Season For Nonviolence 1998 in Los Angeles. Each of the 64 Days was linked to a “way” to practice active nonviolence.
Since then, The Season For Nonviolence has grown into an international grassroots campaign dedicated to demonstrating that nonviolence is a powerful way to heal, transform, and empower our lives and our communities. There are many more than 64 Ways to practice nonviolence, but the designated Season gives us a time to focus on decreasing violence in our lives and our communities by learning to practice nonviolence. It is now celebrated in over 100 cities, including the Manhattan-K-State community. We learn to practice nonviolence one step at a time, one choice at a time, one day at a time. Through our daily nonviolent choices and actions, the noble and courageous spirit within each of us expresses itself as the skills, wisdom and character of a nonviolent human being. This is how we each, in our own way, move the world in a direction of peace. (A Season for Nonviolence-Los Angeles, 1998).
