A COMPASSIONATE CIVILIZATION
We live in the most critical time in human history. We face interlocking crises of climate chaos, ecocide, patriarchy, systemic poverty, plutocracy, bigotry, and perpetual warfare. Let us dare to dream and realize a new civilization of compassion. Let us take the necessary actions for environmental sustainability, gender equality, socioeconomic justice, participatory governance, cultural tolerance, and nonviolence and peace.
SERVING PEOPLE & PLANET
This is the author's life story of his love for the world and his family. His journey begins in small-town Oklahoma and encircles the planet with ICA, UNDP, and NYU, in service to poor villages and slums, cities, nations, and public servants. The reader participates in his awakening, calling, travels, loves, adventures, beliefs, acts of service, struggles, tragedies, ecstasies, reflections, and life lessons.
