SNV Daily Affirmation – Day 62, April 1

4 DAYS OF AFFIRMATIONS FOR NONVIOLENCE IN OUR WORLD

Day 62, April 1:

 Today, I acknowledge every human being’s fundamental right to justice, equity and equality.

Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.  We are caught in an inescapable network or mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny.  Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”  Those who practice nonviolence cannot close our eyes to injustice or cruelty.  We are here to be a witness for justice and compassion.  Are you willing to stand up for truth by your presence, your words and your actions today?

We learn to practice nonviolence one step at a time, one choice at a time, one day at a time. This is how each of us, in our own way, moves the world in the direction of peace. This is the Season for Nonviolence.

This is a part of 64 days of affirmations commemorating the Season for Nonviolence, the span of days between the deaths of Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr.  These writings have been adapted from 64 Days and Ways to Practice Nonviolence by the Global New Thought Movement and Compassionate Activism for Global Healing by the Association for Global New Thought and added to by Tanya Mayer and Paul Friedman. They are grouped in 9 categories: nonviolence toward self, in close relationships, in my communication, in recreation, in my perspective of others, in daily living, in work, for mother earth and in our world.
