    Jan Arnow debuts In the Line of Fire: Raising Kids in a Violent World

    in Lifestyle

    Living in a peaceful world, free from hatred, bigotry, bullying and violence may seem like an impossible journey.  Violence surrounds us and overwhelmingly dominates our lives through crime-based TV shows, video games, and social media – not to mention our daily news feeds which include hate crimes, bullying, school shootings and domestic violence.  According to Jan Arnow, author of In the Line of Fire: Raising Kids in a Violent World, are all connected along a continuum of violence. 
    Boys who witness domestic violence are twice as likely to be an abuser as an adult
    Seven children or teenagers are killed by firearms
    187 children are arrested for violent crimes 
    1,837 children are identified as abused or neglected, and
    2,857 high school students drop out.

    "As a result of receiving poor social mentorship and not knowing how to resolve conflicts, there are more than 61,000 youth residing in juvenile detention centers or correctional facilities throughout the US,” says Arnow. "Abusive behaviors often initiate at home, and children who are abused become the abusers.”

    Jan Arnow is the founder and executive director of Innovations in Peacemaking International, and is an internationally recognized lecturer and authority on multicultural education, violence abatement, prejudice reduction, creativity, and leadership. She is currently working on a teacher's and community guide to In the Line of Fire:

    The World is My Country with Arthur Kanegis

    in Culture

    Arthur Kanegis is a writer, producer, humanitarian and president of FutureWAVE (Working for Alternatives to Violence through Entertainment). It is a nonprofit organization dedicated to telling stories that help plant the seeds for a less violent and more peaceful world.


    What if there were no wars? What if it was expected that we treat one another with respect and dignity because we are a planet of peacemaking individuals? What if each of us looked at humankind as if it was we were all on the same team? I mean look at us. How much of a stretch would that be? Despite some coloration and feature issues, don’t we share similar DNA? We are the same species and can procreate with one another. If an alien were to draw us, we would each have two legs, two arms, and a head. So what if that alien asked “Take me to your leader,” and the answer in our future world was, “It’s all of us?”
    My guest on this show is Arthur Kanegis, who has created a documentary to help promote just such a world, called The World is My Country and features the life story of Garry Davis who was the first Citizen to become a World Citizen.

    He participated in the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, DC. The Prayer Breakfast always occurs on the first Thursday in February. President Obama was there to speak to the group, which is always the case with this significant event.

    In November he was in Slovakia teaching youths, at a European youth training program in humanitarian outreach for the organization DONE (Development of New Environment). He also attended a major event for the Institute for Cultural Diplomacy (ICD) in Berlin. In December he was in Las Vegas to launch a project called "Prayer Spark."


    Frank Kaufmann is the director of the Inter Religious Federation for World Peace (IRFWP) originally a Unification Church ecumenical organization. From 1998 until 2009, he served as editor in chief of the IRFWP's academic journal Dialogue and Alliance, which was named in 2004, by the American Theological Library Association, as one of the top ten religion journals in the world. This man doesn't just talk about peace, he works for it.


    Frank is always a fascinating and well informed guest on our program, and we welcome him back again for his third visit with us on Cosmic Citizen. Please join us live for an opportunity to speak with Frank via our call-in line during the second hour of our show.
