“Peace is a Verb: A Linguistic Shift in the Usage of Peace”

First Paragraph Excerpt:

“As humanity evolves to the next era of civilization,
individuals, communities and nations are putting in motion new
strategies to help negotiate the historical opportunities and
potentially overwhelming effects of future change. The
underlying mission of these strategies is to achieve measurable
success in terms of accomplishing the archetypal vision of
global peace. Yet few words in any language invoke more
controversy and confusion than peace. To make progress and
thrive in the future will require a clear understanding of what
we mean by peace through a purposeful reevaluation and
transcendence of the word itself.”


When you donate to the important work of International Cities of Peace, you will receive the Full Article as a PDF in English, as published in Chinese in the Peace Studies Journal. And, importantly, you’ll help what ICP founder J. Frederick Arment has said is “Humanity’s best hope for global peace — community by community.”
