Thursday Thirteen - 131 - 13 Ways to Say Peace

As you know, I'm travelling across the blogosphere for Blog Blast for Peace today.

Not only that, I'm in the thick of NaNoWriMo.

So on Tuesday I mentioned to my friend Tracy at work that I hoped I'd be able to put together my Peace Globe the way I was hoping to, because I also had a choir rehearsal just to make things interesting.

Tracy, being the marvellous friend that she is, offered to make me a back-up Peace Globe in case I ran into trouble with my own. This is the one she made for me - I love it!

For today's Thursday Thirteen, in honor of Blog Blast for Peace, here are thirteen ways to say Peace:

1 - Fred - Swedish

2 - Mir - Russian

3 - Der Frieden - German

4 - La Paix - French

5 - Pace - Italian

6 - Shaanti - Hindi

7 - Salam - Arabic

8 - Shalom - Hebrew

9 - Tai Ping - Chinese

10 - Ukuthula - Zulu

11 - Aio - Maori (indigenous people of New Zealand)

12 - Wôntôkóde - Mi'kmaq (the First Nations people of eastern Canada)

13 - Sìth - Gaelic

I love her globe! One of these years, I'll figure out how to do graphics and make a globe of my own.

Yep, that's the only reason I've never joined in.

Kapayapaan - that's how we say it in Tagalog, my country's (Philippines) native language. :)
Peace to you and to your love ones. :)
