January 30th marks the beginning of the Season of Nonviolence. Started in 1998 to commemorate the 50th and 30th anniversaries of the assassinations of Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr., the season officially runs between January 30 and April 4. It is an opportunity to celebrate nonviolence, and consider and act in ways that lead us to live in a more just, and peaceful way.
Obviously, there are many many ways to do this. As my friend Amy often reminds me, Gandhi called nonviolence an “experiment in truth.” Let’s get experimenting!
