There are no shortages of quotes available about peace. Why bother reading quotes or using affirmations? Words have power and eventually they affect our thoughts. One of my favorite books is Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White. Charlotte wrote affirmations for Wilbur in her web. If you remember the story, those words changed how he felt about himself. Positive quotes are good to read every day. As affirmations, they help to change our thoughts.
Be like Charlotte and use the web to share positive messages.

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. Inspired by the 50th and 30th memorial anniversaries of Mahatma Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., this international event honors their vision for an empowered, nonviolent world.
Purpose Statement of the Association of Global New Thought that created the Season is:

and worth of every human being.

of peace through their daily nonviolent choice and action.
