Finding a charity that you support, setting aside the time to engage in charity work, and then showing up to actually do it can be difficult for some people.

Not only does volunteering have a profound impact on your community, but it can also have a positive impact on you personally.

At any given time, there are conflicts ongoing around the world that can impact life for people in the area, as well as impact relationships with other countries other countries to varying degrees. For example, it’s difficult to ignore the ongoing hostilities between Iran and the U.S., although calls for peace were made by the U.S. president following strikes on American military bases overseas.

Our skies are increasingly being taken over by drones, which are being put to use for both commercial and non-commercial purposes. The FAA estimates that 1.25 million drones are currently in operation in the United States, a figure that will grow rapidly in the coming years.

Much of that growth will come from the commercial sector for drones, which is expected to triple in size by 2023. Amazon, Google and Walmart are just a few of the companies experimenting with and expanding their drone delivery capabilities so they can make speedy airborne package deliveries.

However, drones are already demonstrating their…

Throughout human history, governments and their agencies, which ostensibly speak on behalf of the entirety of the nations that they govern, have largely been responsible for either maintaining peace or destroying it.

It’s undeniable that this method of peace activism has failed the world and its people, giving far too much power to lone individuals or small groups of prominent government officials to enact policy that affects all of us.

The realization of that fatal flaw in human governance has spawned a new wave of peaceful diplomacy according to author and Adjunct Leadership Professor Andrew H Campbell of Bellevue, NE…


Peace studies is a growing interdisciplinary academic field which first began to flourish in Europe in the 1950’s following the devastating effects of the two World Wars, which laid much of the continent to waste.

What grew from that wreckage was the field of peace studies, which draws inspiration and insight from a wide range of fields, including political science, history, theology, psychology, sociology, and philosophy.
