Robert Koehler, nationally syndicated columnist and self-proclaimed peace journalist, shared his reflections on what it means to be a peace journalist, what drew him to that calling, and the role of peace journalism in healing divisiveness of our nation.  Bob says, "We can't report the truth until we find it in ourselves. We need to put violence into its larger context; it never happens solely in isolation. Conflict is easy to report; understanding is far more complex. We need to report the complex story. The media have a crucial role to play in the creation of peace - and its opposite."
