- Read a commentary on this course entitled,

- Thanks to Dr. Paul Wong of the
International Network on Personal Meaning for publishing this material.
- People who think of suicide, often suffer
pain that stems from feeling deeply humiliated, dehumanized, neglected
and left alone. Kenneth Hemmerick developed A Guide in Human Awareness
that offers many helpful thoughts. The world can change when what Kenneth
calls "proactive kindness" is applied, both by society at large
and by the victim. Often victims are not aware of the power and resources
they have and to what extent they indeed are in a position to contribute
to changing the world.

- Dear Kenneth, What a wonderful idea you made come real. Dr. Wolfgang Fischer, Munich, Germany,
Initiative Emanzipation ad Humanum
What can HUMANESS be ?
We are human
Are we humane ?
Do we ever walk
On Compassion Lane?
What´s humanely being ?
A set of values pure
Ways of humanizing
Making others secure ?
How can we be merciful
When others we criticize
Can we show mercifulness
And make a humane surprise ?
All mortals are
Humane beings ?
We`re still so far !

Applied Peace Linguist, after reading this material.
