I know a nonviolent world will happen; I know it’s possible. I know the violence that people endure and go through and end up being really graceful and gracious after it happens. I know that it can stop. I’m not going to see it in my lifetime, so I’m not Pollyanna enough to believe that. But I see changes happening all the time that move us to a nonviolent world.
