The Aurora Colorado cinema gun violence massacre is not about guns, controlling guns, reacting with yet more gun legislation – it is really about people, you and I, communication, and the quality of our relationships.
Rather than talk about domestic violence – why not shift he ground of being to legislating on behalf of domestic harmony?
Why not promote relationship literacy legislation in place of gun control legislation?
What do I mean by shifting the “ground of being?” What is being done now? How can you help?
Relationship Literacy is:
about shifting the ground of being in the conversation about domestic violence and abuse to promoting domestic harmony.
Relationship Literacy is tasked with the mission to “Bring honor and respect for ourselves and to each other in every communication in any relationship.”
It is now my counseling practice, and I am working towards “Relationship” being adopted as the “Fourth R” in our educational school system. (after the three traditional “R”s of education, “Reading ‘Riting and ‘Rithmetic”.) Do you want to join?
Imagine teaching middle and high school students effective relationship and communication skills.
- Quality of all their relationships would rise.
- Domestic date rape and abuse would diminish.
- Calls for police intervention services would go down.
- municipal court loads would shrink.
- Child Protection Services would be out of a job altogether.
- Domestic violence would begin to disappear.
- (This is all measurable BTW)
Note that there would be no room, no place, no conversation about, no need for legislative agendas regarding guns and violence.
If you want to be part of forwarding this pro-life conversation, let’s meet, talk, and generate the next step towards domestic harmony together.
