Posting a bit late, from the United Nations:
The principle of non-violence—also known as non-violent resistance—rejects the use of physical violence in order to achieve social or political change. This form of social struggle has been adopted all over the world in campaigns for social justice. The International Day of Non-Violence, celebrated on the anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi’s birth, reaffirms the universal relevance of the principle of non-violence. Every year events take place to encourage States to work together to build a world of tolerance and lasting peace. The UN General Assembly proclaimed this Day in its 2007 resolution A/RES/61/271.
May we make every day a day of nonviolence.
See you along the Trail.
