Global Peace

BY MICHAEL BODDINGTON
IN VIENTIANE

Michael Boddington shared with us his vision for a peaceful future. He explained his standpoint through his many experiences, specifically through his work to eradicate the remnants of war that are the unexploded ordinances that continue to cause devastation throughout south-east asia and especially Laos. It was inspiring to hear his solutions to the problem of war and poignant in that he asked us to 'start with ourselves'.
