- Be an instrument of God's peace in your home. Refrain from the use of sarcasm, ridicule, or teasing as weapons against each other.
- Make your household a witness for peace in the world. Sign "The Family Pledge of Nonviolence" available from the Families Against Violence Advocacy Network (Institute for Peace and Justice, 4144 Lindell Boulevard, #408, St. Louis, MO 63108). Commitments in this pledge include: respect self and others, communicate better, listen carefully, forgive, respect nature, play creatively, and be courageous. Periodically review how you are all doing with the pledge.
- Identify "conflict resolution" projects in your community. Sometimes they are called "anger management" programs. Bring one of them to your church, synagogue, school, library, workplace, or other community center.
