Violence is any word or action that hurts another person.
Violence is any mean word, look, sign, or act that hurts a person's body, feelings, or belongings.
These are on signs posted in local elementary schools teaching our kids that the meaning of violence is a mean look or word. Imagine!

Good Lord! I would ask them what dictionary it came from, after all, "words have meanings". Thanks.

I'm a little dense sometimes, I apologise. I reread it and now I understand that is the actual wording on the signs.

,,, this new languange is a fabulous tool for getting results in the Family Court. I have a Court Order enabling me to phone my kids on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7pm sharp. Outside these times it's possible, according to my ex's lawyer's written submission to the judge, for the ex to feel "violated".
When I was in school, in the 40's and 50's. If I got into a beef with another guy. We could go to the principals office And ask to put on the gloves. And if we were pretty much the same size. He would take us out on the front lawn and we could fight till we both got tired. And then he would sent us both back to class, with the understanding that it was over. And must of the time it was.
