Peace Literacy
A Skill for the 21st Century
 
 
          Paul K. Chappell
 
Our newest OWR member, 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 War, Peaceful Revolution, The Art of Waging Peace, The 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.
 
On 23 January 2018, I attended the weekly Zoom meeting of the Rotary E-Club of World Peace at which Paul was the guest speaker.  Also in attendance from OWR were Vocational Service Director Ken Meyer and Community Service Director Bill Boyd.
 
Paul is introduced by Rotary E-Club of World Peace founder and convenor of the Rotary World Peace Conference 2016, PDG Rudy Westervelt.
