While I love packing for trips, I’m no fan of airports — what with the $8 water, security theater, uninspiring shopping, and nagging, low-level mix of boredom and fear. (There’s probably a German word for that.)
Returning from my recent trip to New Orleans for the Association for Conflict Resolution (ACR) conference, I had that rare positive airport experience. I got to hang out with a true peacebuilding luminary — Dr. Tammy Lenski, recipient of ACR’s Mary Parker Follet Award. Her acceptance speech was, to say the least, unorthodox…for which I’m bestowing upon her Mensch of the Month status, previously received by Dr. Alan Gross and Detective Jeff Thompson.
Here‘s Tammy’s official bio, followed by my interview with her.
