Responding to violence with violence adds fuel to the flames and keeps the fire burning hotter. Revenge is satisfying, but as Gandhi wrote, “An eye for an eye leaves everyone blind.”
Education is key to ending terrorism, just as it is vital to creating a world without hunger. Education provides the tools for critical thinking as well as providing the necessary skills to break the cycle of poverty. Creating a world without hunger and creating a world without terrorism both begin with education for all.
