VIDEO Part 2: Life, Liberty And The Pursuit Of Peace

In part two of this seminar John comes closer to the present day, telling a story of his trip to Kandahar, Afghanistan, shortly after the September 11 tragedy in America. The story itself is thoroughly engaging. John describes what he saw of the poverty and destruction in Kandahar, and he says, “You could say, it is too vast; there’s too much disturbance and trouble to handle.  That’s the attitude that never goes anywhere,” he observes. “The attitude that makes a difference is, ‘I’ll do what I can.’ And that is really what I have to say today. Let us just do what we can to move toward a world that has greater peace in it, because,” he says, “we’re all in charge of our own peace.” John concludes with a deeply felt blessing for peace.
