There are only two forces in the world, the sword and the spirit.

In the long run the sword will always be conquered by the spirit.

Violence: Bullying, etc.

Youth violence, including violence in schools, is a big public health problem because it affects many people – even beyond young people. Youth violence refers to harmful behaviors that may start in childhood and continue into young adulthood. It includes bullying, slapping, punching, weapon use, and rape. Victims can suffer serious injury, significant social and emotional damage, or even death. The young person can be a victim, an offender, or a witness to the violence - or a combination of these.

In the United States, an estimated 55 million students are enrolled in pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade. Another 15 million students attend colleges and universities across the country. While U.S. schools remain relatively safe, any amount of violence is unacceptable. Parents, teachers, and administrators expect schools to be safe havens of learning. Acts of violence can disrupt the learning process and have a negative effect on students, the school itself, and the broader community. Detailed information about youth violence is available here.
