I asked the chicklets if they would help me with this months Artists4Peace and they said, “Sure, it sounds like an interesting thing to do. So they got to work.
Arnold said that mean, violent and hurtful words break hearts and make everyone feel sad and blue, even Checkers the dog. Arlene said that kind and loving words make everyone feel happy and sunny. They agreed that words matter and that they should be used to be nice to others and bring peace to all living beings. They don’t use hurtful words at The Coop because they believe in love and joy.
How does language influence Peace?
It doesn’t, actually,
nor of a piece,
unless you already want it to,
“Counterfeit truths fade
Enlightened souls ascending
Seeking life essence
Changing winds sojourn
Fated death of arrogance
Seeking guiltless calm
Inner child adapts
Child knows no limits
Ferocity stays the path
The Peace Warrior
The Irreducible Primary
