I promise to ring the bell by:

Teaching my children and all I meet the values of all peoples equal worth and their right to exist without violence. That´s 24/7..

Hans’ inspiration behind making a promise to Ring the Bell:

“I pledge to never bear a hand on a woman. I have never done.. I am an athlete (exswimmer and was captain of the Swedish national team. Big and strong, and that made me safe from the bullies at school. I avoided all physical violence although I have been slapped more than once by my exes. There are women who physically abuse men, I have been there, but I always refuse to sink as low as violence. I´ve stopped the mother of my child from trying to raise my son with a fist and degradation. And I´ve been slapped many times by my mother, who died Dec. 2012. I still love her. I understand that I was a hard child to cope with, but violence is never the answer. I Love the Ring the Bell initiative.”
