Knowledge Mobilization (KMb): Multiple Contributions & Multi-Production Of New Knowledge

A Holiday Knowledge Mobilization (KMb) Hope

Peace on Earth

As the holiday season approaches and a New Year of hope is set to begin, I wish to thank the many followers of my KMbeing Knowledge Mobilization (KMb) blog from around the world from over 110 countries for your ongoing support, valued comments and constant encouragement – and wordpress.com for the amazing platform in which to share knowledge!

Knowledge is often symbolized by a tree. I felt the holiday card above is particularly appropriate as an expression of connected knowledge sharing from everyone around the world.

As many of you know, I have always taken a more holistic approach to KMb – seeing the idea of sharing knowledge for social benefit to create a better world as a possibility for everyone.  Everyone has knowledge to share to make the world a better place – regardless of “intelligence” level, race, color, creed, gender, sexual orientation, nationality, religion or political affiliation.  Combining all our knowledge beyond borders to create a truly collective human knowledge to make the world a better place is the answer – and the greatest hope for the future of humanity.

In the spirit of the season, I have put together a few borrowed words from some of the more popular and traditional Christmas songs that you may recognize – and though they are Christian in origin, they are meant to transcend all religious and political differences with the hope of someday using all of our collective personal knowledge for a better tomorrow!  For Peace On Earth Will Not come Through Religion Or Politics – But From Shared Connected Human Knowledge to make every life on this planet a valued and appreciated life!

I wish you all best wishes for health & happiness at this time and peace into the New Year and beyond!

Away in our world, no home or a bed,

A hungry child lays down a sweet head.

No food is roasting on an open fire

As disease is nipping at someone’s toes

 

There’s no place to deck the halls with boughs of holly

No reason to be jolly

 

Do you see what I see?

As a star above is dancing in the night

 

Do you hear what I hear?

As a song is sung high above the trees

 

Do you know what I know?

The need for peace, people everywhere!

 

And by the light of that same star

Where all are wise that come from afar?

 

Now let us all with one accord

See that we can no longer afford

 

Two thousand years of wrong

With worlds at war for so long

 

Joy to the world! Is what we need

Let all people everywhere – their knowledge share

Repeat this sounding joy!

 

A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices

For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn!

 

That leads to a silent night

When all is calm and all is bright

 

When we all can sleep in peace

On earth

 

Joy to the world! Is what we need

Let all people everywhere – their knowledge share

To overcome our problems faced

And make the world a better place

Repeat this sounding joy!
