Peace Education, Peace Psychology, Peace Linguistics: Toward a Humanity-improving Integration
POETRY FORMAT, 3 Dec 2018
Peace Education, Peace Psychology and Peace Linguistics interconnected they are
Their principles and applications will help Humanity go far
Peaceful, nonviolent, nonkilling human beings the world urgently needs
May peace educators, peace psychologists, and peace linguists globally plant PEACE seeds
By Peace Education, dignifying learnings-teachings are sown
By Peace Psychology, dignifying character/emotions are sown
By Peace Linguistics, dignifying monolingual/multilingual interactions are sown
By the contributions of the three interconnected fields a sustainable COSMODIGNITY will be grown
The integration of Peace Education, Peace Psychology, and Peace Linguistics will enhance the global role of PEACE
and the peacebuilding efforts of Humanity will never cease
When Education + Mind + Language(s) for PEACE are fully integrated
Life on Earth will become joyfully experienced and humbly appreciated
When no longer will there be a need for educational-psychological-linguistic PEACE?
When a thorough, LOVE-inspired PEACE will always illuminate ways of sharing the EARTH
