We can hear the word shalom everywhere in Israel, which means peace. Is there anything humans long for more than an environment of peace? In Chinese the word 安 is the word for ‘peace’.
安 is pronounced ān.
The character 安 (ān) was first seen in the Oracle bone script in Shang Dynasty. Its meaning is peace. Here, we see the radical 宀(meaning roof), with the character for woman, 女(nǚ), underneath it, associating peace with femininity, and suggesting that an ideal household is managed by a caring and persevering woman.
