My brother sent me this link to a news story you knew I would enjoy. It’s a great story for plenty of reasons:
- The story shows a creative way of engaging one you might consider your “enemy”
- Instead of the common first reaction of justice through police involvement, Pan chooses an alternative that results in a better outcome for both her and the thief
- Usually our stories and news portrays criminals and enemies as robotic in their thinking, not human; This story shows even criminals are human, with real hurts and abilities to change
I’d love to continue to collect stories of non-violence here. So, if you find any other stories let me know and I’ll post them.
I posted another story a while back that showed pacifism at work.
