PRAYER INSTEAD OF VIOLENCE

VIOLENT BEHAVIOR, school fights, nightclub brawls, and road rage. Such antisocial conduct often makes the TV news in my area. Consequently, one is left thinking that society has turned nasty. What's happened to niceness, decency, patience, respect, and self-control? What can be done about violence?

First, I find it useful to resist feelings of dismay, and keep in mind that the perpetrators grabbing the day's headlines are only a small minority acting improperly. Thousands of decent people, keeping the peace and, acting in a law-abiding manner, never make the evening news. Even so, it doesn't mean that violence should be ignored. All violence is unacceptable and needs to be addressed.
