Breaking the Cycle of Violence

On Friday, March 13th, Todd Middle School was thrilled to have a school assembly
called Breaking the Cycle of Violence. There were three speakers that shared their stories. 
They had all dealt with a tragedy in their lives and discussed with the students and faculty
how they moved past their own losses and were able to move forward through forgiveness. 
They discussed and encouraged Nonviolent Conflict Resolution through Forgiveness. 
Each child was also given a copy of their original book which was a best seller.
