Francisco Gomes de Matos – TRANSCEND Media Service

A  Multidimensional View

Children for FAMILY PEACE let’s globally educate
and show them how everyone´s character to elevate

Children for SCHOOL PEACE let’s prepare
and show them how for one another to care

Children for SPORTS/ATHLETICS PEACE let’s sensitize
and show them  the need for mutual  respect to prioritize

Children to INTERNATIONAL PEACE let’s commit
and show them how political/spiritual differences to admit

Children with ECONOMIC PEACE let´s imbue
and show them how to one another give their due

Children in PEACEFUL COMMUNICATION let´s engage
and show them how to harmonize with persons of any age

Children to multiple forms of PEACE let´s creatively expose
and show them how a MULTIDIMENSIONAL PEACE they can help propose
