  • In thanksgiving for life, I pledge
    to overcome VIOLENCE
    by observing that fighting violence by violence

    and, thus, to foster life by acting NON-VIOLENTLY.
  • In thanksgiving to life, I pledge
    to overcome FEAR which is the root of all violence
    by looking at whatever I fear as an opportunity

    for a peaceful future.
