International Day Of Nonviolence And It's Importance
International Day of Nonviolence
Informally known as World Nonviolence Day, International Day of Nonviolence falls every year on October 2. Officials chose the date in June 2007 to commemorate Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday because he was a pioneer in the nonviolence movement. On the day, around the globe, numerous communities participate in education sessions, awareness events, and promoting nonviolence.
Why Is This Important?
These days, violence seems to be growing - we hear about it every day. According to The Peace Alliance, around the world, violence causes 1.6 million deaths each year, and here in the U.S., homicide rates among youth are more than ten times higher than in other industrialized countries. At recent events, peaceful protests have turned violent, and many have been injured or have died at them. We need to remember, as Mahatma Gandhi once said, “There are many causes that I am prepared to die for but no causes that I am prepared to kill for.”
How to Do Your Part?
Educate yourself about the importance of nonviolence—check out online sites such as nonviolence.com or the Alternatives to Violence Project. Talk to your community leaders about hosting an educational event or street awareness campaign. Not just on International Day of Nonviolence but every day through the year, set the example of peace, tolerance, and understanding. And you can spread awareness throughout the year by wearing the message—you can have T-shirts or wristbands customized for this purpose. You can use wristbands, for example, as an inexpensive and colorful way to get people to notice your point. You can imprint different messages on them, such as “Give peace a chance” or “Nonviolence is a weapon of the strong” or simply as "Nonviolence" with an artwork 'Pigeon' - a symbol of peace. And you can get them with eye-catching effects such as glitter or glow-in-the-dark elements.
