Interview with Lisa Schirch

Lisa SchirchLisa shares with us her wisdom on the peacebuilding field. She experiences it as an art. On this regard she develops three key concepts: design, improvisation and healing. She talks about the challenge of working as a peacebuilder within the US Military. She is witnessing the inner enslavement of many soldiers, she says:  “I think the recent news that more US soldiers died from suicide than in battle in the last year is evidence that there is a lot of internal wrestling going on with people in the military. And they have been asked to do things that go against the human nature and what people are taught; and when you are asked to do something that goes against your human nature it is very hard to live with yourself.”
