I am absolutely thrilled to discover "The Building Blocks of Peace". I now teach Intercultural Communication at Bay Path College in MA & I'd love to introduce a class in peace studies using your curriculum. I also plan to introduce this to a local peace group to introduce this curriculum to our local schools. Thank you SO MUCH for this work.
