“Peace” in Many Languages!

Hi hi!

So for no apparent reason and just simply for interest, I decided to look up how to say “peace!” in different languages! I guess it’s cause I just love listening to the variety of awesome languages! haha! And, peace is universal.

Some words from … THE INTERNATIONAL PEACE DICTIONARY!

Arabic (from North Africa, Mideast, Central Asia) – “Salam”
Bengali (from Bangladesh) – “Shanti”
Choctaw (Native American) – “Achukma”
Dari (Persian) – “Sulh”
Egyptian (Egypt) – “Hetep”

Haha! Cool huh? Don’t worry! I’ll continue sharing “peace” words to our INTERNATIONAL PEACE DICTIONARY!

But that’s all for now! haha! Check back later! But until then… Achukma!

India Arie!

Okay, I’m adding another song on my favorites list and another person to my insprirations!
It’s INDIA ARIE!!!!!!!

Wow! I really love the messages in her songs. She’s so different  from most music in the industry, and I find her as a great role model for self-confidence, true beauty, happiness, and of course peace! She always seems so happy, and her songs definitely convey that. I love listening to her, and I encourage all of you to check out her music!

Here’s a sample of her song “Little Things”. She’s so right: It’s the little things in life, the things that go unnoticed, that really make a difference in our lives.
