day began 40 hours of
prayer and 40 days of
action against violence.
At a launch at the
group's office on Fred-

Spain, co-ordinator of
the event Kyle Dardaine
said Non-Violence Be-
gins With Me campaign
involves citizens, organ-
isations, religious and
community groups and
activities will be taking

"This is a different kind
of movement. It is not one
which is being organ-
ised through one central
community. This is the
kind of movement where
we are asking you to take
the message and to take
the liberty and freedom
to organise in your com-
activities," Dardaine said.
He also urged citizens
to wear blue, a colour as-
sociated with peace and
harmony, every Friday
starting from yesterday.
Dardaine said on March
24 there will be candle-
light memorials across
the country for victims
"We are asking peo-
ple to gather across the
country so there isn't
one national gathering.
We are asking for several
gatherings of candlelight
where people can meet
and where the names of
people who have fallen
and hurt in some way by
violence to be called out
and recognised," he said.

"We will be going to to
those broken communi-
ties that are affected by
violence. Our children
and our women ... our
most vulnerable in society
... we need to reach out to
them and help them un-
derstand that we are car-
ing for them. We can rise
above this violence and
we can be a better nation,"
J. Errol Lewis, execu-
tive chairman of Junior
Achievement of T&T,
one of the many organ-
isations participating in
the initiative, said it was
important that the issues
of young people be heard.
"We need to understand
that this movement of
non-violence and love be-
gins with me. If you do not
invest in young people you
should not look forward
for a return on invest-
ment but if you continue
to invest in young people
then you have a right to
question them on how
they are performing with
the opportunities given to
them," Lewis said.
