"I will use the Steps to reconcile conflict. I used to think that if I pretended that the conflict didn't bother me then eventually the other person would forget about it. Now I know that it is more likely for the other person to be my friend again if they know how I feel. I also know that a way to show that is to use the Step of Reconciliation." Grade 5 student

"I think the most important thing I learned about Nonviolence is Agape. I think that Agape is important because it represents what Nonviolence is. No matter how unkind a person is to you, no matter how much you don't like them, you must be kind to them for the person they have the potential to be. There will always be people you don't like, and people who don't like you, which is why if everyone used Agape there would be less conflicts." Student
