Violence around Us – We Can Make a Difference

As my new hometown, Baltimore, searches for a solution to the continued murders that have plagued our community in 2014, I am overwhelmed with the violence in other parts of our world and our country.  A young man in Florida was killed because he was playing loud music in front of a convenience store and a United Nations report is released about the systematic torture of the citizens of North Korea by their government.

At Campaign Consultation, Inc. we have been blogging about opportunities to take action in Baltimore to address the issues that can stop many of the social and economic problems that may cause individuals to use violence in our world.  Are there other things that we can all do as individuals to turn the tide of violence in our city, our country and our world?  There are so many programs that are chipping away at the societal problems of domestic violence, alcohol and drug abuse, bullying and hate crimes.  It is easy to be overwhelmed, but individual action can make a difference.  Here are some things being done to reduce the violence in our world:

We have all been challenged to look for solutions, learn more about the problems and find ways to take one action against the violence in our world.
