"...the best peace work in the world is learning someone else’s language because in doing so, you begin to understand a whole different way of putting the world together and naming it.  Not only that, you’re able to communicate with those ‘foreign’ others and realize that though languages differ, the human heart speaks the same native tongue everywhere.  When you learn someone else’s language, you knit the human family closer together.”
         --Julia Alvarez, Author
