PeaceKeepers Counsel SWS Chaplin #BroAlMims
As SWS founder, I recently had a ringside seat to observe a conflict resolution session between New Orleans Peace Keepers and our number one crimefighter and mentor, Bro Al Mims. Let me openly confess that I support conflict between urban stakeholders and urban strangleholders, but that's no secret.
The trio interviewed Bro Al and his wife about their issue with a career community criminal and drug addict. They also peeled back layers of stress and worry common to anyone bearing the cross of promoting lawfulness in the inner city. The dialogue was as much about healing Bro Al as seeking unlikely reconciliation with the other party. The session highlighted the need for internal mediation where we resolve disputes before they escalate.
While I remain a proponent of self-defense and security solutions, the PeaceKeepers model is one that works. Just ask Bro Al Mims, who smiled from ear to ear after the session ended. The PeaceKeepers counseled a great peacemaker in a community long overdue for more peace!
