Peace Leadership Program Director, Nuclear Age Peace Foundation

You've seen the bumper sticker: Wage Peace.  Now let's talk about what that really means.
 
Building on the powerful argument for "waging peace" laid out in his first book, Will War Ever End?, Paul Chappell's new book, The End of War, explains in detail how together we can end the wars between countries, our ongoing war with nature, and the suffering in our hearts.
 
We will also talk about Chappell's upcoming Peace Leadership Training Workshop, which he will give on Saturday, October 9 at the Unitarian Universalist Church, 505 E. Charelston Road, Palo Alto. Click here for details about the workshop.
 
Chappell is a 2002 West Point graduate who served in the US Army for seven years, was deployed to Baghdad, and left active duty in November 2009 as a Captain. He currently serves as Peace Leadership Director for the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation and speaks throughout the nation at schools, veterans groups, churches, and other organizations.

I phone in to the live TV Show and express thank for Paul work and also related to service as I play basketball and the result of it! I returned to college in the Fall of 1971 and began to practice for the up-coming season. I then really began to see the tremendous hatred and violence that sports express. I had become thoroughly disgusted with my hypocritical involvement with basketball.
