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. Often poetic appeal does cause man to pause even at times to stop to hear and try to affect peace. Your consistent appeal is therefore recognized with this award.
