|"Dona Nobis Pacem" Grant Us Peace|
La paix... pace... paz... vrede... rauha... frieden... shalom... peace; a simple word that can move mountains, restore relationships, spread love, calm waters.
It can suspend hostilities in the form of a truce or armistice.
It can bring one's mind to rest with emotional tranquility, equanimity, ataraxia.
In children's games, it can be an immunity or exemption call: fen, vents, fains, fain it, fains I, faintes, pax.
Peace promotors are conciliatory, irenic, pacific, placatory.
Between countries, peace can create amity, appeasement. It can resume with a rapprochement or detente.
In politics, a politician or advisor can be deemed a hawk (aggression over peace) or a dove (peaceful solutions).
So... the word for today is PEACE, in any shape or form. Let your PIECE speak.
