Folks are eager and quick to point fingers and throw stones when something goes wrong or in retaliation for something. This is quite a childish response. John Lennon said it best,

“When it gets down to having to use violence, then you are playing the system’s game. The establishment will irritate you – pull your beard, flick your face – to make you fight. Because once they’ve got you violent, then they know how to handle you. The only thing they don’t know how to handle is non-violence and humor.”

The moment one lashes out in response, regardless of so-called “justification,” one shall be labeled as a violent offender. Once one is labeled as such regardless of physical, verbal or spiritual aggression, one finds them self being watched more and treated differently.

However, there are times when one has no choice, but to defend themselves. It is a natural reaction of not just the mind, but the body as well in order to prolong life. But many are quick to jump to this action as a response instead of seeing all other possibilities first.
