Thanks for the great post Erin. Well put. The Golden Rule is a beautiful thing to me -- it is so simple and true. Even most new age tenants are centered around it. Like attracts like, think win / win, live with gratitude, etc. They all go back to the golden rule.
The solution to evil is simply love. Love everyone, treat everyone with kindness, love and respect and expect to be treated the same way.
Exactly right. There is no other effective response to crime anyway.
Personally, if I were hurting someone, first I would want to be stopped, then counseled.
