Finally from this vocation of love, a new culture of peace and nonviolence will flower and grow and multiply. We know who we are: God's beloved sons and daughters. We know who everyone else is: our beloved sister and brother. And so it follows precisely -- we will never hurt another again. Moreover we will renounce every trace of violence and war. We'll forsake corporate greed and nuclear weapons. We'll refuse to be silent or passive or afraid or complicit with the world of violence. We'll get involved, and give our lives so that every human being on the planet can live in peace with justice, with food, housing, healthcare, education, employment, and dignity.  

We as a people and as a nation are hurting beyond measure. Without a change of heart and soul, we are doomed to repeat the cycle of violence and fear that we have allowed to overtake our lives in a way unseen or felt in our lifetime.
