"There are some things only governments can do, such as negotiating binding agreements. But there are some things that only citizens outside government can do, such as changing human relationships." Dr. Harold Saunders, former U.S. Assistant Secretary of State, and Negotiator of the Camp David Accords.
Many people "want" peace but not relationships. This cannot be, as defined in the 2012 award-winning documentary film -- DIALOGUE IN NIGERIA: Muslims & Christians Creating Their Future. In the film, Nigerian Dr. Emmanuel Ande Ivorgba defined that the greatest killer of people and creativity -- and cause of wars -- is not HIV but HRV -- Human Relationship Deficiency Virus. Ivorgba defined the root cause of most human crises as rooted in a Poverty of Relationships and a famine of communication skills.
Everyone wants to be heard, yet people are far less interested in listening. The quality of listening around the planet is poor.
Fortunately there is on Earth a new breed of young adult citizens who refuse to be enemies and insist on engaging. These new Artisans of Communication have the will and skill to listen that gives them the power to transform human relationships and re-direct history.
This radio show will describe more about these communication skills that begin at home and affect families, schools, businesses, and the birth of a true, sustainable global community of cooperation.
