Shalina Gupta with the organization United For Peace joins us today to take a look at the philosophy of using love to solve conflicts, even violent conflicts, as we prepare for the upcoming celebration “Ghanaian 150: The Legacy of Peace” Friday, October 18, 6:30pm to 9:00PM at the Field Museum in Chicago. Can love be used as a force to stop violence? Can love transform behavior of enemies? The decendants of some of our modern day peacekeepers, Dr. M. Mandela, daughter of Nelson Mandela, Santita Jackson, daughter of Rev. Jesse Jackson and Anthony Chavez, grandson of Cesar Chavez, will be a part of the upcoming October 18th celebration. We also take a look at resolving family conflicts, brought about as a result of a long term relationship in which their was no marriage between the man and woman, and when she passed away, there erupted disagreements between children over who should inherit the house. Can peace be brough to this family conflict? Can conflicts be resolved using the law, or can laws sometimes be unjust? How can the power of love be used to end violence and oppression?
