I am honored to have as my guest mediatior Doug E. Nolll the author fo Elusive Peace. Creating peace- not an easy accomplishment. Everyone wants to live a peaceful life. Ideally countries and their leaders want their citizens to live threat free and in peace. The world is huge and billions of people inhabit it trying to survive, bringing up children, earning a living so why are so many bent on destroying others? Why do we need peacemakers to help us get along with our neighbors, friends, co-workers and spouses? Author Douglas E. Noll brings to light why crucial negotiations between parties fail- diplomats enter these talks with “flawed assumptions about human behavior, society, and power.” Can every conflict be resolved? Caused by humans, created and orchestrated by humans- humans have the power to end them. So, why do they choose to fight, hate, dislike and not see another persons, or group’s point of view?
Doug won the international peace and justice book award. And that he won California lawyer attorney of the year award for teaching peacemaking to female prison inmates through the prison of peace project. I am your host interviewer, book reviewer, author and educator Fran Lewis. Along with Kenneth Weene and Sandra Elrod we will talk with this outstanding author and mediator.
I would also like to welcome the author of Remain in the Light Collin Kelly. Collin Kelley is the author of the novel Conquering Venus and the poetry collections Better To Travel, After the Poison, Slow To Burn and the forthcoming Render. His new mystery/suspense novel, Remain In Light, is a 2012 finalist for the Townsend Prize for Fiction. This is going to be great.
