Love Wins: A Radical Story of Reconciliation Overcoming Hatred in Rural America

  • Vail 710 Classroom (map)

Please join us on Friday, April 5 from 2:30-4:00pm in the Vail 710 classroom for a powerful discussion on “Love Wins: A Radical Story of Reconciliation Overcoming Hatred in Rural America” with Danny Day, the FBI informant responsible for preventing a planned bombing in 2016 of a Somali apartment complex in Garden City, Kansas, and Mursal Naleye, one of the leaders of the Somali community in Garden City. The conversation, facilitated by Benjamin Anderson, MBA, MHCDS’16, CEO of Kearny County Hospital in Lakin, Kansas, is powerful and emotional. The issues of justice, violence, friendship, forgiveness, and reconciliation are at the fore of the dialogue.

The presenters offer the opportunity for deep reflection on questions of difference, reconciliation, and courage. This session will also model what true dialogue between very different people from vastly different backgrounds and beliefs can look like.
