In Conclusion . . .
When I had everything inside there was a lot of pressure on me.
When I let everything out I just felt relieved.
Children’s exposure to violence is an issue that touches everyonean American
tragedy that scars children and threatens the safety of communities. A great
challenge lies ahead: to help move this country closer to the day when children
are no longer victims of and witnesses to violence, when they are given the support
they need to thrive, and when they respond to conflict nonviolently, without
destroying their lives and the lives of others. Taking the steps in this Action
Plan will bring significant progress in this journey.
