Preventing Mass Shootings
As of June 1, 2019, There have been over 171 mass shootings in the U.S alone. People are using violence as a means of solving issues, that can easily be resolved peacefully. These act’s of violence are taking place in homes, schools, places of worship, places we work, fitness centers, theaters and other places we entertain ourselves, negatively affecting people from all different backgrounds. The increase in gun violence should be viewed as a life-and-death warning. Most of us are wondering, where is the next one gonna take place.
Mass Shootings are globally recognized as acts of evil.
Well, what is Evil?
Evil is the absence of good, and the remedy for an absence is a presence. Evil is an absence and, therefore, it cannot be healed with an absence. Hating evil or, one that is engaged in evil, you contribute to the absence of good and not to its presence. The presence of good scientifically rids evil. An evil person can be arrested, but can evil be arrested? An evil group can be imprisoned, but can evil be imprisoned? A compassionate heart is scientifically proven to be more effective against evil than an army. An Army can engage another army, but it cannot engage evil. A compassionate heart can engage evil directly – it can bring good where there is no good.
We need to use our authentic power.
