As a key contributor to civic and cultural life here in our town, Kalamazoo Public Library participates in a variety of collaborations and joint-ventures. One of our lesser-known partnerships is with WGVU public television and other organizations engaged in the Fetzer Institute’s “Campaign for Love and Forgiveness.” Through community events and public TV programming, the campaign encourages conversation and contemplation about how love and forgiveness can effect change in individuals and society. For our part, KPL has hosted well-received film showings and conversations about forgiveness.
Yesterday, I learned from the campaign leaders that May 1, among other distinctions, is Global Love Day! In the spirit of international harmony, I’m happy to share this amazing video from the “Playing for Change: Song Around the World” project.
