Maybe I need to be educated on this nonviolence thing- In my mind, nonviolence means not using physical means to protest an injustice. What it is however, is using other means to protest an injustice. When I saw the movie Gandhi-there was plenty of overt displays of protest-his hunger strikes, the march to the ocean to protest the salt tax, etc. When I saw the pictures of the march to Selma and the diner sit-ins and the children being escorted into Little Rock High School-they were all overt protests to a blatant injustice. I wouldn't deem phone calls violent by nature. They may be irritating and overbearing, they may invade much needed privacy, but violent? If Jason doesn't want phone calls and just needs time to chill and get his head together, then we need to allow him that space. He will reach out when he is ready. He has just been through a major ordeal with much backlash to come. When need to be in prayer for him, and support him.
