Another Kind of Violence!

“For there is another kind of violence, slower but just as deadly, destructive as the shot or the bomb in the night. This is the violence of institutions; indifference and inaction and slow decay. This is the violence that afflicts the poor, that poisons relations between men because their skin has different colors. This is a slow destruction of a child by hunger, and schools without books and homes without heat in the winter.” J.F.Kennedy rightly said in his speech on April 5th, 1968.

The humanity that unites us all and encourages everyone to come together to help each other heal and to move forward as fellow citizens working together to bring about the changes that are needed. Today, his moving words are still so relevant.
