Harmony

Co-authors: Ricardo Beron

I am very happy that an organization as UNESCO is stepping forward to create a special event for celebrating our cultures and make us look inside to who we are and what are we doing as we co-habitate this planet.

Description: The Children in a circle represent a harmonious celebration of their cultures and lives. The different colors of the children symbolizes the myriad of cultures in our planet. The festival feel is also connotated with the cursive type in different colors. The cursive type has a more dynamic feel that goes with the tone of the festival. The harmonious feel of the girls playing is the ideal celebration of the diversity of cultures. But to achieve this harmony people have to work and engage with people and its cultures. You have to be curious why people speak different languages or dialects. You might want to taste different types of food that different cultures offer and discover amazing tastes from different corners of our planet. They might clue you in an organic cloth water repellent material that you’ve never seen because there is a certain plant that only grows under certain conditions. Or a type of wood that is very flexible and resistant that you could use for your house. This is the type of energy it is stored in the myriad of cultures that we have to discover and engage with them. Its a process of discoveries that is going to transform our planet and unleash a tsunami of energy that will carry mankind to galaxies that we never thought we could visit. When we learn and appreciate other cultures in our planet we realize how valuable your own culture is and appreciate your individuality, and your essence of being. We develop a sense of respect for mankind and its different ideas that have to be learned and accepted. This is a very demanding process because you might encounter cruelty within cultures and you have to make choices and sometimes you can not change cultures. But this energy you experience will start to open up a sense of wonder and beauty of our planet our Children will like to experience as they start their journey through life.
