Living with Differences: Team Prayer

Team Prayer:

The field is carved from a sloping hill, defined by stick goals, and mottled with grass clumps growing in defiance of packed earth and coarse gravel. Leaning my bike against an avocado tree, I lace my once white cleats and jog onto the field. Smiles flash across dark faces—the “Umuzungo” has come to play! We clasp hands and chest-bump,…

Shot in the infamous Yue Man Square, this photo highlights the fusion of Chinese and Western culture in Hong Kong, seen through the contrast between the western dressed male and the dilapidated industrial districts in Hong Kong.

Living with Differences: Old and New

In the middle of  a circle of tall, multinational corporate offices, we are surprised to find ruins of this old neighborhood. Along in the process of being replaced with new buildings, there is a feeling of strength and history about the old buildings -  striving to tell their story despite the roar of the corporations.

Living with Differences: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow

An old man in a wheel chair next to the Huang Pu River (beyond the wall in the photo). Next to him is his wife, standing causally while read from her mobile phone.  China's older generation has lived through the turmoil of revolutions and wars, but today, they contently embrace the calm of a new technological age.

PEACE

Traveling through Burma and Thailand last summer, I instructed each group of kids I encountered on the importance of making a good peace sign. As Einstein said, "Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding."

This photo was taken in Trinidad, Cuba. This is a street musician playing along a cobblestone road on the edge of town. Locals and tourists danced to the distinctly Cuban music- the young, the old, Catholics, atheists, those who follow African traditions and those who do not- everyone enjoyed the music together.  They were joyfully living with differences…

Living with Differences

Traveling through vast northern Burma I was continually aware of the cultural differences facing me in this part of the world all but shut off from western civilization until less than 10 years ago. How surprised was I to find this group of young buddhists doing the same thing my 9 year old brother was probably doing half a world away. Our connected world is a window…

The American student leaders were surprised by how much joy the Cambodian children found in a simple game of "pass the ball." It was the remote village of Mondulkiri's first time having plastic balls and colored paper to make little crowns with. The residents of this mountainside village are mostly farmers who live in…

Ill Winds: Saving Democracy from Russian Rage, Chinese Ambition, and American Complacency, with Larry Diamond

Larry Diamond's core argument is stark: the defense and advancement of democratic ideals relies on U.S. global leadership. If the U.S. does not reclaim its traditional place as the keystone of democracy, today's authoritarian trend could become a tsunami that could provide an opening for Vladimir Putin, Xi Jinping, and their admirers to turn the 21st century into a dark time of surging authoritarianism.
