Blog blast for Peace

Shinade at the Painted Veil tagged me with the Blog Blast for peace...what a wonderful idea. I think it is time we all stand up and say it is time for peace. Wouldn't it be wonderful if for one day the world could be a safe, secure, and the wonderful place it has the potential to be? Maybe all together we can make that happen. Shinade has a much better way of explaining it than I could come up with so here is what she has to say:

Peace is a wonderful thing. Yet many all over the world are not walking out into their gardens and catching glimpses of flowers, bees, butterflies or any other thing that could be defined as beautiful.
Instead they face each day filled with fear, hunger, and sheer horror at the sights they and their children must endure every single day:genocide, bombs,funeral after funeral, burying the dead, mass graves go unmarked, their view and their hope is bleak.
So thousands of us, from all over the globe, join together every six months to make a simple post titled: Dona Nobis Pacem. We all hit the publish button at the same time. The plea for global peace makes a strong resounding wave all across this powerful new media known as the blogosphere.
On this one day no matter your country, your heritage, faith, your religious belief, or your lack of, on this day we stand as one.
We stand together for peace.
Please join us in this movement and post a peace globe on November 6, 2008.

You have such interesting posts! It is so refreshing to see a horse of your quality care so much about our world.

A friend of mine just went to a conference about food in NYC and heard the startling statistic that EVERY SECOND a child dies of starvation somewhere on our planet. So, maybe if we find some peace, we can deal with problems like that. Count me in - I just have to have another cup of coffee before I can follow all those directions.

Shinade said...

Wow you are good and quick. I'll head over right now and add you to my list also.

Have a great day!:-)

I sent my Peace Globe to Mimi last month, but I didn't know you have to add all the links?

Mimi Lenox said...

Wow. I'm so glad you joined in and tagged people. That is exactly what we hoped would happen! I'm so excited that the word is spreading and growing. I will see you on November 6th. Thank you so much for your enthusiasm. Awesome!
