Dear DECORUM! Readers,

I’m so sorry for the recent lack of posts here!  Life has been really busy lately with end-of-the-school-year exams, projects, and performances.  Look out for new entries later this week.  Thanks, and my apologies again!

P.S. Happy Belated Mother’s Day! <3

The Thursday Three

(Sorry for the lateness!)

1. What if there was a strategy game that, instead of teaching players how to win with machine guns and full-scale war, taught players how to win with nonviolent civic action?  Check out this video game by the incredible A Force More Powerful project and the International Center on Nonviolent Conflict: http://www.aforcemorepowerful.org/game/index.php.
