Over the past 64 days we have learned ways to practice being at peace in the world. Our daily message included reminders from those who came before us as wayshowers of peace in action from Gandhi, to Cesar Chavez and Martin Luther Jr.

On our last day of the Season for Non-Violence we join in loving remembrance that at 6:05 P.M. on Thursday, 4 April 1968, Martin Luther King was shot dead while standing on a balcony outside his second-floor room at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee. Let us remember his words and carry on his commitment to creating the #BelovedCommunity.

“I could never again raise my voice against the violence of the oppressed, without having first spoken clearly to the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today — my own government.”

-Martin Luther King, Jr.

Our final spiritual practices of peace:

COMMITMENT. Until one is committed there is hesitancy, a chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans; that the moment that one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves, too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would come his way. And so it is with nonviolence. We set forth a commitment to nonviolence with an intention that we can act upon today. By doing so, we are presented with situations and circumstances that will allow us to model our commitment, to bring nonviolence to a situation.

“Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it!
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now!”
