Research shows that children who commit senseless acts of violence believe that life, including their own lives, has little meaning. When the Kavelin Popov family originally saw the need to do something to counteract violence and suicide among children and youth, they looked to the sacred texts of the world's religions for the meaning of life. Woven like a silver thread of unity amongst them all are the virtues, described as the qualities of the Creator, the attributes of the human soul, and the very purpose of life. Service, love, faith, unity, honor.
