Chapter 4 opens with one of the best definitions I've read of nonviolence. Wink says that nonviolence is a , "creative struggle to restore the humanity of all parties in a dispute."
If we keep that definition in mind, it automatically should answer a lot of questions for us. Kara

I thought it was interesting that they said (page 51) "Gandhi believed that a thirdway can always be found, if one is deeply committed to nonviolence."
I makes you remember that it's all really a matter of wanting something badly enough. If you really want to be kind and loving in your ways at times it may be hard but you can do it.
