Cost of Violence

 

The study of the cost of violence is an eye-opener. Our society spends

zillions of dollars as a result of acts of violence committed, yet is

extremely reluctant to spend a few thousand on prevention.

 

It seems to mee that a slight increase in education budgets would give

educators the means to make children aware of the consequences of

violence and to give them the means to solve their differences by

effective communication.

 

Anothe cost of violence is indirect.

 

Look at all the money we spend to protect ourselves from violence:

 

Locks on doors, alarms, etc.

Insurance policies to cover the damages of violence

Security guards

Etc

 

Live long and prosper in peace,
