    ABSTRACT: Violence threatens or denies not only the health of those who are directly affected but diminishes the whole human process. Neither the violent acts themselves, nor the repercussions of these tragedies, are limited to one geographic or social setting, and it is not just the frequency of violent actions that threatens the health of the nation. It is the ripple effect that occurs from each of these incidents that affects everyone. This article discusses the problem of national violence in the United States and examines preventive programs.
