Peace: A Multidimensional View

POETRY FORMAT, 23 Jan 2017

The multidimensionality of Peace is never to cease.

Peace Art imagines the way
Peace Education builds the way
Peace Psychology probes the way
Peace Linguistics means the way
Peace History records the way
Peace Right dignifies the way
Peace Anthropology culturizes the way
Peace Theology spiritualizes the way
Peace Ecology naturalizes the way
Peace Politics determines the way
Peace Journalism questions and presents the way.

May the interaction of all these fields help Humankind to Sustainable Global Peace find the wisest way.
