Historian Kent Shifferd reminds us that at present we might believe that the world is more violent than it ever has been. Yes, there is an overwhelming war system, one that might provide us with a darkening and narrowing vision of the future. It’s an old story but it’s no longer the only story. Another is in the making although most educators, the media, and even presidents don’t know about it. Large shifts are taking place in terms of global collaboration, constructive conflict resolution and social change.
