Stop In The Name Of Love



As a father and husband, I am against violence of any sorts. As an educator, I know that the research done by experts, have shown time and time again, that violence in the classroom, has the potential to distrupt a child learning curve, and it is also has the potential to turn today’s abused into tomorrow’s abuser.

For me the death of that 11 year old boy is tragedy, but the greater tragedy is that some where down the road, this might happen again, if we don’t put a stop to it, in the name of love.
Below are two links, that will show you why violence is never the answer, rather it’s often the cause for more pain and heartache in the future.
