I chose this piece because it is a great overview of all the things I have learned so far in the Global Peace Course. The purpose of my nonviolent action was to get the people in Tunisia to come together and together make change through song, food, and dance. I learned that one person can start change, but it takes the entire community to follow through and make it happen. I learned this from the extreme example of Mohamed Bouazizi, the man who set himself on fire outside the President’s house, in order to inform people of the injustice going on in Tunisia.
