I set out to show that nonviolence could deal with Hitler.
My novel, Denmark Rising, is lavishly praised as a compelling, impossible-to-put-down story that convincingly shows the Danes largely foiling Hitler with nonviolent strategies. It expands the possible and fires our imagination.
If you will read it, I will send you a free copy. Peace and Grace,
See we both know SFCG. I was selected to run the peace radio station in Burunda, but did not take up teh offer due to the fact that my wife was pregnant that time. I am still very interested in mass media for peace building and cinflict resolution. Keep me informed.
