Church of Scientology of Kansas City stands with faith community and nonprofits to end the violence in the city.
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, October 7, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — “Our hearts go out to the families of the victims of last night’s senseless shootings and to families throughout the KC metro area who have suffered from the deaths of their loved ones,” said Ms. Bennette Seaman, Director of Public Affairs of the Church of Scientology Kansas City. “We love our city and stand with the many other local churches and nonprofits that are dedicated to ending the violence. We are all working together—and must continue to work together—to spread calm and peace.”
Seaman stresses that while incidents like the violence on Friday night are tragic, we cannot give up hope and must not give up. There are underlying issues that violence feeds on, she says, and these are things we can all work together to remedy.
Seaman believes in the power of the individuals living in the KC metro area to raise the moral compass and thrive using a common-sense moral code called The Way to Happiness that has helped people do so in other equally challenged communities.
This is the same booklet used by the monthly Peace Rides in South Central Los Angeles organized by a coalition of religious and community leaders. The Peace Rides and this little booklet are credited with lowering the crime rate and brokering peace between the Bloods and the Crips, South Central L. A.’s most notorious gangs.
The booklet is also used by Twin Cities by MAD DADs, a coalition of African-American men and parents who are fed up with gang violence and illegal drugs, led by peace activist V.J. Smith. And by Denver’s Rev. Leon Kelly who uses it to help bring parolees back into society and keep them out of jail.
“Families in this city deserve a safe community to raise their children,” said Seaman. “We are working together to bring peace to our neighborhoods.”
Anyone wishing to learn more about this campaign for peace is invited to contact Ms. Seaman at (816) 753-6590.
