Your publications, such as THE DOVE OF PEACE , provides leadership for world harmony through love. Your sensitivity to man's desire for a peaceful planet is a recurring theme in your poetry. Man's humanity to man advances interceptively. But voices such as yours through the centuries plead for brotherhood.
