Seed of Violence - They're planted

Decisions to be violent emerge from ideas that have been "fertilized" by hate and hostility.

In the same way that a seed that is well watered in good soil, springs forth to life - we could chose to "water" and "fertilize" seed of peace, instead of seeds of dissension! 

We can make a difference in how we program and train and plan for peace!
  • We can make a better future! 
  • We can educate differently!
  • We can shape generations in new ways!

Ideas consistent with the ideals of the Eupan Global Initiative have been shared by Brian McLaren in this article, A Fertile Summer for Violence, that ends in this way:

If we want to stop shootings in theaters and houses of worship, we'd better start paying attention to the seeds of hostility we're sowing in our theaters and houses of worship -- and in our political speeches, on our cable news shows, in our blogs (and comment sections), and even around our dinner tables.
