A major goal of Speaking With…(TM) is to encourage people to celebrate diversity. Realizing that people may find this difficult, even if only on a subconscious level, if we believe any major group has been cursed by God, Carl continues to clarify that the black race has not been cursed by God as is erroneously conveyed by some. His major point? All races have God-given freedom to freely embrace one another even as He embraces us all.

A tragic reality of life is the trauma caused by war. This tragedy takes on even deeper meaning when we consider the effects on children who are forced to serve as child-soldiers. Carl will discuss this issue in the second hour.
