We are all still stunned

Non-Violence is the greatest force at the disposal of mankind. It is mightier than the lightest weapon of destruction devised by the ingenuity of man–Mahatma Ghandi

are we past T H I S ?
Aside from totally being stunned by the sheer madness;
the utter devastation of at least 5 9 innocent people being massacred. . .

Literally HUGGING everyone you know
and those you don’t. . .

but actually using the two most powerful ways possible:

to effect the most drastic means of healing change
there’s but one answer:

Violence is a bon-fire of hurt that burns many,
Love is that small flicker that makes it impossible
for us to forget the
