Celebrate the Season for Nonviolence on School Grounds with EXRA CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES
Horrendous statistics about the high level of violence occurring in our beloved country, the United States of America.
The total annual financial cost for the USA due to the disastrous effects of violence is 120 billion dollars.
Can anyone "quote statistics" or "count dollars" for the emotional pain and anguish of family and community members, who have lost loved ones?
