Dona Nobis Pacem-Peace Education Achieves Cultural Equality

What Do I Want My World To Look Like?

I worked in a multicultural government environment where all holiday symbols were no longer allowed. I could understand ‘rules’ applying to anything that was racist, extremist or gang-related being prohibited. However; eventually personal screen savers on the computers, family pictures… were also banned. We were being depersonalized to comply with a Politically Correct work area, instead of embracing each others individuality.

Enough is enough! No longer calling All Saints Day, Merry Christmas, Happy Thanksgiving, Diwali, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa… a Holiday Season, no longer being Politically Correct. No longer stripping heritage of the freedom to wear dreadlocks , yarmulkes, headscarfs, jeweled religious symbols…. We need more Peace Education and less Politically Correctness.

I want a World filled with education on Peace, on every academic level. For those areas without the benefit of a educational system or a school, let any ground where people gather around be a place to learn about Peace. This learning should cover all diverse Cultural Races/Ethnicities/Traditions…., and emphasizing Socioeconomics that span the Globe and encompasses our own daily surroundings.

Socioeconomics should not pertain so much to low, middle, or high class as divided by the monetary or statistics system, however; showing how sociology and economics factors pertaining to various backgrounds, can contribute greatly to an individual and/or communities health and mental well-being. Peace Education should incorporate Field trips to work in the local homeless shelters, drug rehabs, Elderly residential care facilities…. It is time education systems have Students participate hands on instead of the primarily ‘Politically Correct’ prescribed ‘Formal /Official Curriculum’ book learning test taking’ diplomacy to potentially graduate with merely just a piece of paper. We need to educate the mind and the emotional depth of each individual. Especially in todays society where People are becoming increasingly numb to empathy due to desensitizing from overindulgence in video games, television hype, etc.

Peace Education that consist of teaching about the diverse Cultural Races/Ethnicities/Traditions…, Socioeconomics, and hands on learning in local communities could have a great influence on decreasing the astronomical stats on Bullying Bullying Statistics because Bullying often is a result of various preconceived prejudices.

Can Peace Education help prevent War? War use to be deemed ‘a necessary evil’, thought by some to contribute to the justification of human overpopulation. When injustices are done to humanity, perhaps War is necessary. However; the loss of human lives, limbs, sanity… in this age of modern technology should not be the price paid. ‘We have the technology, we have the capability to make the world's first’ robots to combat in War, there is no need for human casualties.

Peace Education would help raise children, teenagers into adults (whom rather they choose college, etc. to further their education) they would contribute greatly to society as a whole on the home front, in communities, work environments, and/or the Political arena with educated minds and emotional understanding of individualism to help better promote Peace and not War.

Peace Education is not a new conceptInternational Decade for the Promotion of a Culture of Peace and Non-Violence for the Children of the World, but we need to get on board; to help make World Peace a plausible possibility and not a implausible probability.

To make Peace more than just a Dream. To embrace individuality of every individual; respecting individualism, individual Races, Ethnicities, Cultural Traditions, sexual orientation, etc. We need to STOP being so damn Politically Correct. What we need is to S.T.O.P. (Stop And See The Other People).

Amen!!! You are so right, peace will come from embracing diversity, not attempting to erase it.
