Hi - this bill, as I understand it, would promote our best available practices for dispute resolution and violence reduction - it would not replace any existing departments - like Defense or State or Education (85% of the bill's proposed spending is for domestic peace-enhancement), but would provide resources relevant to the work of all these areas. Soldiers in peace-keeping roles would have more thorough training in de-escalating tense situations. Police and other emergency services would be better equipped to defuse a domestic violence situation (where a very high percentage of police officer injuries are currently sustained). These are tools we all need - respectful, connective, life-enhancing communications. Let us make this a national priority. Like we formed NASA in the 50's to emphasize our "outer"
space travel possibilities - this would represent a national felt need to improve our dealings in inner and interpersonal space. This is not flaky - it is necessary.
