The Effects of Sexual Violence In The Congo

The Effects of Sexual Violence In The Congo | Stop the Silence of Violence | Scoop.it

When Sarah Fretwell dove into the heart of the Democratic Republic of Congo in 2010, her only plan was to cover a story, not to change the world. “I didn’t understand when people said they had a calling,” Fretwell says, looking back on how her journey to the DRC to document survivors of sexual violence turned into the Truth Told Project, an ongoing multimedia series. “This topic somehow stayed with me.”

Open Your Arms to Peace! The Little Way of Virtue  By: Official Maryann D'Amico | Stop the Silence of Violence | Scoop.it

Help support efforts to reduce violence! All over the earth people are suffering from the effects of violence.You matter. The world needs Peacemakers. Yet, fear and indifference hold many back from the call to Peace. Following are some simple suggestions to get started.

 

1.- Pray for Peace.

2.-Think about Peace.

3.-Speak about Peace.

4.- Act for Peace.

5.- Open Your Arms to Peace.

6.- Forgive others.

7.- Pray for your enemies.

8.- Do good.

9.-Speak no evil.

10.- Hear no evil.

11.-Do no evil.

12.-Silence those who slander and gossip.

13.-Practice kindness.

15.-Practice humility.

16.- Practice patience.

17.-Practice selflessnes.

18.-Practice Faith

19.-Practice Hope.

20.-Practice Love.

 

Believe it or not,Peace is possible. But, it is not possible without the practice of these virtues. We live in a world where virtue is being obliterated.This is why every 9 seconds a woman is violently struck. This is why women are caged as sex slaves. This is why children are abused. This is why we have wars. VIRTUE has been forgotten and the world is in much suffering as a result. If everyone decided today to Open Their Arms to Peace by the practice of virtue then the world would change overnight.

 

Come back to the Little Way of Peace. It is simple. There is no agenda. There is only one solution...Love One Another by the practice of virtue.
