International Day of Non-Violence

Wednesday, Oct. 2, is recognized as International Day of Non-Violence to commemorate the birthday of renowned Indian leader Mahatma Gandhi. The United Nations established this day in 2007 in an effort to spread the message of nonviolence through public education and awareness.

Gandhi helped lead India to independence through the principle of nonviolence. He was committed to maintaining this belief even under oppressive conditions and challenges.

To celebrate this day, you can read the biographies of those who won battles without violence. Leaders like Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks and Nelson Mandela are great examples of this lifestyle.
