Topic: Guns vs. Flowers


The title of this Forum is a reference to this viral video:

In crisis situations, take guns as a metphor for any response involving
hostility or conflict, and flowers as a metaphor for any life-affirming
response.

Can flowers ever defeat guns? What does it take? In what circumstances are
flowers ineffective? How do we find flowers in the face of guns? And should
we even try? Do you have any favourite examples of flowers responding to
guns?
