Statements of Conscience

Kristin W. Buchholz

NY, United States


I believe that all forms of life are sacred and should be valued and respected. In valuing all walks of life, I personally, and in cooperation with others, denounce war and violence. I do not believe in war or justifications for war. I practice listening to my own conscience when facing conflict. This inner wisdom, as well as my community, and my Higher Power, all guide me in finding and acting upon peaceful and compassionate alternatives to resolve conflict. I am bound by my beliefs and my own conscience to speak and act on behalf of peace and compassion for myself and others.
