PEACE LITERACY: PRESENTATION TO THE FORT COLLINS ROTARY CLUB BY PAUL CHAPPELL

Paul K. Chappell is an international peace educator and serves as the Peace Literacy Director of the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation. He graduated from West Point, was deployed to Iraq, and left active duty as a Captain. He is the author of the seven-book Road to Peace series about ending war, waging peace, the art of living, and our shared humanity. The first six published books in this series are Will War Ever End?The End of WarPeaceful RevolutionThe Art of Waging PeaceThe Cosmic Ocean, and Soldiers of Peace. Lecturing across the United States and internationally, he also teaches courses and workshops on Peace Leadership and Peace Literacy.

Chappell grew up in Alabama, the son of a half-black and half-white father who fought in the Korean and Vietnam wars, and a Korean mother. Having grown up in a violent household, Chappell has forged a new understanding of war and peace, rage and trauma, and vision, purpose, and hope. His website is www.peacefulrevolution.com.

Emerging from a century of almost continuous warfare combined with the Rotary Foundation’s commitment to promoting peace and this current year’s focus on literacy, this topic is proving to be much needed and compelling for U.S. citizens, in particular.
