(Across risers of four steps, beginning at the top:) HE THAT HELPS ANOTHER HELPS HIMSELF. PEACE CANNOT BE KEPT BY FORCE,IT CAN ONLY BE ACHIEVED BY UNDERSTANDING. A CHILD MISEDUCATED IS A CHILD LOST/WE FEAR THINGS IN PROPORTION TO OUR IGNORANCE OF THEM. THE CHOICE IS NO LONGER BETWEEN VIOLENCE AND NONVIOLENCE, IT IS EITHER NONVIOLENCE OR NONEXISTENCE/IT TAKES A VILLAGE TO RAISE A CHILD. WE MUST LEARN TO LIVE TOGETHER AS BROTHERS OR PERISH TOGETHER AS FOOLS. LISTEN TO THE SONG OF LIFE. WISDOM IS BETTER THAN STRENGTH WITH A SHIELD./GIVE PEACE A CHANCE. FORGET INJURIES, NEVER FORGET KINDNESS. WELCOME UNITY IN THE COMMUNITY. NOTHING CAN DIM THE LIGHT WHICH SHINES WITHIN. TECHNOLOGY DOES NOT TEACH REVERENCE. unsigned
