Are we ignoring the lesson of nonviolence? Daily Metta

“We are seeing nonviolence working all the time and we are ignoring the lesson.” 

When nonviolence happens, do we notice? Michael relates two stories: Nurse Joan Black and Antoinette Tuff, and examines how the media interpreted them, and emphasizes that if our understanding of nonviolence were richer, we would learn something powerful about our capacity as human beings to resolve our greatest challenges.
