Here you can adopt the Pledge of Nonviolence by adding a personal comment.
The Pledge of Nonviolence states that making peace must start within ourselves. By adopting it we commit ourselves as best as we can to become nonviolent and peaceable people.
Pledge of Nonviolence
To Respect Self and Others
To respect myself, to affirm others and to avoid uncaring criticism, hateful words, physical attacks and self-destructive behavior.
To Communicate Better
To share my feelings honestly, to look for safe ways to express my anger, and to work at solving problems peacefully.
To listen carefully to one another, especially those who disagree with me, and to consider others' feelings and needs rather than insist on having my own way.
To apologize and make amends when I have hurt another, to forgive others, and to keep from holding grudges.
To Respect Nature
To treat the environment and all living things, including our pets, with respect and care.
To Play Peacefully
To select entertainment and toys that support nonviolence and to avoid entertainment that makes violence look exciting, funny or acceptable.
To Be Courageous
To challenge violence in all its forms whenever I encounter it, whether at home, at school, at work, or in the community, and to stand with others who are treated unfairly.
This is my pledge. These are my goals.
