In looking around, SOF clued me to this great post from Visual VoiceVisual about another anniversary--the anniversary of 100 years since Mahatma Gandhi's introduction of the non-violent resistance movement. Gandhi's grandson had these words that I think are a good way to frame this terrible day:
"The first lesson [my grandfather] taught me was to understand anger, and being able to channel anger into positive action. He said that anger is like electricity. It is just as useful and just as powerful, if we use it intelligently. It can be just as deadly and destructive, if we abuse it. Just as we channel electricity, bring it into our lives and use it for the good of Humanity, we must learn to channel anger in the same way. We can use that energy for the good of Humanity, rather than abuse it.
