Beyond Gun Laws

Written on: March 15, 2018

The Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart support the common sense gun laws being proposed and the peaceful demonstrations meant to gain movement in passing them.

However, the gun issue is symptomatic of something much larger.

As a congregation of women religious, historically engaged in teaching and health care, we see the need to address this issue educationally, advocating that a peace curriculum be integrated at every grade level, kindergarten through high school and continuing through required reading or courses in college.

“If peace is what every government says it seeks, and peace is the yearning of every heart, why aren’t we studying it and teaching it in schools?”

Colman McCarthy.
