Today, Bloggers from all across the globe
will blog for peace.

We  will speak with one voice.

One subject

One day

I am privileged to be participating in the 7th launch of BlogBlast For Peace, aka Dona Nobis Pacem in the blogosphere.

About Blogblast for Peace:

It’s inception began in 2006 with one single post and a cry for peace in our world.

A small group of bloggers answered that challenge and it began to spread across the internet in ways that humble me still. It reaches across political lines and religious creeds, abides in corners of unrest and places of hope, gives voice to individual beliefs and promotes tolerance for diversity. It celebrates the genius in each one of us, found in sparkling conversations of passionate pleas for change in the earth.  It is that hope for change that motivates us.

It was the Internet’s first ever online movement of its kind to invite bloggers to post the same message on the same day. From blog to blog it has moved and continues to grow. It is a virtual inscription of hope. We have been amazed to see the power and passion shown each year displayed on pages across the world. We visit each other with our prayers and scribbles, prose and poetry, art and angst, heart and hilarity – and we are moved by it.  From one post to thousands of others in fifty countries and almost every state in the United States, something rare and wonderful happens on BlogBlast For Peace day.

I am privileged to join in.
I invite you to experience it.
It’s time.
Join us!

“Peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek, but a means by which we arrive at that goal.”
Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.”
Buddha

“Peace is not something you wish for; It’s something you make, Something you do, Something you are, And something you give away.”
Robert Fulghum

“Peace is not the absence of conflict, but the ability to cope with it.”
Unknown

“There was never a good war or a bad peace.”
Benjamin Franklin

“It is more difficult to organize a peace than to win a war; but the fruits of victory will be lost if the peace is not organized.”
Aristotle

“Peace is a daily, a weekly, a monthly process, gradually changing opinions, slowly eroding old barriers, quietly building new structures.”
John Fitzgerald Kennedy

“Civilization will not last, freedom will not survive, peace will not be kept, unless a very large majority of mankind unite together to defend them and show themselves possessed of a constabulary power before which barbaric and atavistic forces will.”
Winston Churchill

Welcome to Blogblast for Peace 2010, Stacy! I love your Peaceglobe :-)

I have the priviledge of being one of Mimi’s worker bees, collecting Peaceglobes from all over the planet…it’s a big task, too big for one Queen bee :-) I shall be carrying yours back to her.

Wishing you peace and happiness x

ps to all the other folks here who like the idea…Mimi says ‘it’s never too late to join in’ and she’s keeping the Mimi’s Mr Linky open until the end of the weekend for folks to sign. However, we worker bees will continue to fly the globe and pick up any new posts as they come along. So, if you still want to join in…. :-D
