Invoking “devoir de reserve” occurs for me as a too precious by half.


World Peace Game

10 July 2019 - 10:31 PM

I was flying back to Cville from Atlanta today, and who should sit down beside me but my old friend John Hunter.

We met 10 years ago rehabbing our injuries in the physical therapy pool at the local fitness center, an hour a day of running, skiing, cycling, etc in deep water. We never saw each other outside that pool, and haven’t seen each other in the years since we finished that therapy.

He was a 4th grade teacher at Venable Elementary School, and he told me about this game he invented to teach social studies.

Then in 2010, Cville filmmaker Chris Farina did a prizewinning documentary on the World Peace Game, and the whole thing took off. Now John travels the world teaching masters classes in the Game.

It felt wonderful to reconnect. John’s one of the good guys.
