Writer looks to cure for violence

Letter to the Editor

Posted: Friday, June 22, 2007

Did you ever think that as Americans we are spending too much of our precious resources on the wrong side of the equation?

As I read the papers and listen to the news regarding violence in schools, violence on the streets, violence to women and war with our international neighbors, I long for a time when we turn our resources toward curing the root causes of violence, instead of endlessly pouring resources into building more prisons and waging war.

There is a bill in congress, HR808, that addresses these issues. You can learn about the bill and how to contact your legislators at www.thepeacealliance.org.
