What if instead of meeting violence with more fear and violence, we drilled down further into the roots of the problems that beset our society?
Totally agree and resonate. Let's also be curious about conflict resolution; our media paints the only solution to conflict as a bomb, a gun, or a magical superpower. I feel much of the problem also results from the destruction of any sense of community and collective wellbeing; divide and conquer still works. Thank you for your attention on reaching out to others; let's be generous with our love.
Spiritually we need to introduce children to the concept of transmuting toxic energy so that it does not severely impact them, while also learning to send their own negative thoughts of retaliation into the arms of a loving being to be transformed into pure light energy. Adults, of course, would also benefit from learning these concepts, but children are the keys to the future of our planet.
