Lecture by journalist and peace activist Colman McCarthy
Monday, February 9, 2004 - 7:00pm
Whitaker Auditorium
For 20 years Colman McCarthy has balanced his career as a columnist (including some years at the Washington Post) with teaching courses on peaceful resolution to conflict to more than 5,000 students at such institutions as Georgetown Law School, the University of Maryland, various suburban prep schools, and a detention center for troubled youth in the Washington area.
"Every day in my classrooms students devour the literature of nonviolence and slowly commit themselves to living a life in which conflicts are settled through the force of justice, the force of organized resistance to abusive power, the force of truth -- satya -- and the force of love, not the force of fists, guns, bombs, nukes or armies."  In our elementary schools, high schools and colleges and universities, we have "a combined population of 50 million learners.  Unless we teach our children peace, someone else will teach them violence."
