This week we prepare to address the root cause of violence in our communities, our nation and our world: abuse of children. Whether emotional abuse or sexual abuse, the children who grow into violent angry adults are expressing an unhealed inner hurt. Upcoming interviews with Arno Michaelis, former white supremist leader and author of "My Life After Hate" and Sammy Rangle, former gang leader and author of "Fourbears: Myths of Forgiveness" will give insight on how to transform the lives of those who are now living destructively. Before we change gun laws as a solution to the killings, we first must transform the violent spirit within those who hurt others, by recognizing that they are in fact suffering and in pain themselves.
