"Ngemba" also means friendship and intimacy
as if when we are at peace

In Ngochang or Achang spoken in Yunnan China
"samlo" means to keep silent
so as to insure luck in hunting
to enter and be imbedded
I imagine a hunter in camouflage hiding in a blind
quiet and still
not a gun but a camera ready to shoot
so all can go peacefully on their way
"Samlo nyens nyens" is quietly or peacefully
to be at peace
while "samsam" is still and quiet but also confidingly
and "tsingtsam" is also still and quiet.
"tsoek yah" and "nyens nyens" is to be quiet, still
and thus orderly
like a new world order where everyone
finds ways to be at peace
"Samlo yaus dah jeis"
is quiet, slowly as flowing water
as water flows across borders
shared or horded
polluted or clean
it flows from one place to another
filling the wells of all of us indiscriminately

From the Tongue to Ultimate Purpose in Yoruba (Nigeria)
We have a saying in Yoruba spoken in Nigeria

first bring peace to your tongue"
There is peace "àlàáfíà" and "ìrèlè"
and other Yoruba words
explain the concept of peace
"idera" or comfort
"itunu" peace of mind
"itelorun" conveys contentment
"ifokanbale" as the mind rests in a place without worry
"àlàáfíà" translated peace as well as sound health or well-being
and a beautiful word "ifaiya bale" succinctly mulling over
the practice of peaceful volition and absolute non-violence
integrated into this gentle peaceful word
"ifaiya" is alignment as in being aligned with one's destiny
or ultimate purpose in life
as if only through peace
we each attain purpose in our life
Notice the relationship today between the things you say and your sense of accomplishment.

What word for peace would you choose if you made up your own language?
How would you spell "peace" if you had only ever heard the word and never read it?
imagine if a cow or a rat ate your only book
what words would you teach your children
with no way to check the truth of your words
would you make up words and meaning
Make up a language
describe the community that speaks that language
what are the words for
Sometimes it takes more than one word to get the meaning across. It takes a community of peace to write peace in some languages. It is not a bad thing it just takes more people more connections more sounds to call peace into being.
Say the word peace in whatever language you would like as loudly as you can.
Tell someone about your commitment to peace and to health for yourself and others.
