An Individual’s Pledge of Nonviolence
Non Violence must start with me
On this day, ______________________ 2016,
I, ________________________ commit myself, as best I can, to practice nonviolence and to strengthen my capacity to remain peaceful regardless of circumstances.
I make this pledge:
To Respect Myself and Others:
To treat myself and others with dignity.
To support and encourage others.
To avoid giving uncaring criticism,
To avoid speaking hateful words,
To avoid giving the silent treatment,
To avoid physical attacks and self-destructive behaviour.
To respect Nature and our surroundings
In my entertainment and play, to be creative and non violent
To be Courageous in living non violence
And ultimately ….To Love one another
This IS my pledge.
I will check myself on what I have pledged once a month on _____________ for the next twelve months so that I will try to become a better and peaceful person.
