Youth PROMISE act adds 56 new cosponsors in June (so far!)

If you're into civic activism, this is really amazing to watch!

What is Real National Security?

"Security is not Defense; Defense does not equal security."



The concept was far from new to me. What was different was who was saying it.



Lt. Col. Shannon Beebe, former Senior Africa Analyst in the Office of the U.S. Army Deputy Chief of Staff, Intelligence, is considered one of the nation's leading thinkers on the concept of human security. He spoke as part of a panel discussion at the April 2009… Continue
