Hi William, we kind of stopped talking for a while. I enjoyed very much your ideas and discussions. Now I am in the U.S for MA. International Studies/Human Rights at the University of Connecticut and it will take me 2 years, and even more because I want to get my doctorate immediately. We can still continue our discussions and you may be of great help to inform my knowledge of several contemporary issues. I have a passion for social justice, human rights and peace. So anything along that line is definitely to my taste, but I am very open to any discussion, who knows I may meet you one day in any of the conferences because I am looking forward to attending several of them. Just let me know if we can invent some talking points.
Have a wonderful weekend

Dear William,
I am very interested to learn about what you know about interfaith research/practice, especially in terms of recognising Indigenous spirituality. Do you have any references you would recommend in this area? I am currently doing a PhD in Visual Anthropology called (so far) "Indigenous Peacebuilding Through Art: Hunter region"
Thank you and best wishes,
Andria Durney

William,
You have a lot of informative things for me. I understand that you are too busy and need to work within set time.
I am also somehow busy and may not respond as fast. However, i will make appropriate response to the discussion on having a world leadership. Please go ahead and we talk more about the leadership foundation you talked about, I am more than interested in the project.
I gotta run now, talk later.
take care

Hey William, I am glad the communication is rolling forward. I hope the trend doesn't change.
Well, about the ERNWACA Research Grants Programme, I do get alerts from the peace and collaborative network on all available opportunities. For this particular one, I do not qualify.
Now, on the issue of United States of Africa, it interests me that you are following up the discussion and have also written books relating to the same. The truth of the matter is that, we have more gains to make from having a United States of Africa than to individualize (single states involvement) our need for development, including trade and political/economic independence among others.
The challenge for long ,continues to be the exhibition of predation (against other countries) by some/most of the African countries. Moreover internal democracies is a very powerful ingredient for such a coalition, this is totally lacking in our Africa. Hunger for power has consumed most of our would be engines to unity, coupled with corruption and dictatorship among other things. One event in one country affects the entire continent, e.g the state of Zimbabwe is being felt in the entire continent-typical of globalization and its impacts. Therefore, for as long as some countries are still conservative, nothing much will change for others, because we are realistically interdependent.
Even the current storm for a United Africa is typically an intention to amass wealth and feed the egoistic nature of some of the key people-no wonder some of them have already expressed interest in being the United Africa.
In my independent view, I will say this is a dream come true. Ask me why..... The discussion about having a coalition government started way back when I was in elementary school, today I am a graduate and no sign is up for unity. I would rather suggest that sub regions within Africa strengthen their relationships and leave the talk of uniting Africa for probably the next coming generations, I am sure by then, the spirit of democracy would have got instilled into the young generation.
I got to run now, we'll talk later.
Let me know if you need any specific updates about Africa, especially Uganda my country.

Thanks william for the commentnon my page. It is very fascinating that we share the same passion for humanity. I like to coordinate and link up with people that have the same aspirations as me. I will be more than willing to share professional ideas with you, and I also notice that you are actually more senoir to me in professional field. You will certainly be a good addition to my list. We will talk more. Hey, do you have any projects for Africa?
