There is a long spiritual and civic history to the practice of nonviolence, or the use of peaceful means to bring about social, political, or desired change. This is usually built upon a belief in moral or religious principles of not causing harm. Nonviolence can also be a strategy for achieving goals, which ‘ennobles’ the one who uses it, as Martin Luther King, Jr noted. It is considered an ‘activist’ approach, similar to civil resistance, of exercising one’s choice to do something instead of passively accept or physically struggle against something unjust.
Tell your story of nonviolence in the form of a before, during, and after sequence of events that describes what led up to this, why it was necessary, how it was carried out, and what changed as a result of this nonviolent action.
