EMU leaders speak of the life and lessons of an alumnus, Glen D. Lapp ’91, whose body was found in Afghanistan on August 6, 2010. He was an unarmed health worker on a relief mission with 9 others who also were murdered. Lisa Schirch, PhD, EMU professor of peacebuilding and director of the 3D Security Initiative, talks about being guided around the capital of Afghanistan by Glen during her work-visits since 2009 and their last conversation a month ago on lessons the U.S. government should learn from humanitarian workers, especially the Afghans themselves. EMU president Loren Swartzendruber explains how Glen embodied the ethos of EMU and how some graduates of EMU will continue doing nonviolent service and relief work despite the obvious dangers.
