"It is very tempting to take the side of the perpetrator.  All the perpetrator asks is that the bystander do nothing.  He appeals to the universal desire to see, hear, and speak no evil.  The victim, on the contrary, asks the bystander to share the burden of the pain.  The victim demands action, engagement, and remembering..." -Pamela Cooper-White

"Non-violence can truly flourish when the world is free of poverty, hunger, discrimination, exclusion, intolerance and hatred--when women and men can realize their highest potential and live a secure and fulfilling life.  Until then, each and every one of us would have to contribute--collectively and individually--to building peace through non-violence."  -Anwarul Chowdhury
