Season of Nonviolence - Day 18

Welcome to Day 18 of the Season of Nonviolence – 64 Days of peaceful wisdom honoring the lives and nonviolent principles of Mohandas Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Cesar Chavez.

Nonviolence begins with learning how to be less violent and more compassionate towards ourselves. We learn by building the courage to speak and act with respect, honor and reverence for our own being.

Eleanor Roosevelt has urged, "You must do the things that you think you cannot do." Practicing these 64 Ways will challenge you to do things that you think you cannot do.


Civil Rights activist Diane Nash said, “Freedom, by definition, is people realizing that they are their own leaders.”  Take a leadership role today in your own life.  Find a way where you can express who you truly are.

When people decide they want to be free, there is nothing that can stop them.
~ Bishop Desmond Tutu

To be free is to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.”
~ Nelson Mandela

Today:  I'll claim my definition of freedom.  I'll write a haiku poem about freedom.
