getting ready for Peace GlobeBlogblast

 I was proud to be caught trying to spread Peace . They gave me a badge for it . 

Just 5 more days till 100's of folks start turning their blogs and Facebook full of Peace globes .

BlogBlast For Peace ~ Dona Nobis Pacem

Bloggers will unite in a global cry for peace in this annual event. One day. One voice. All it takes is one post. Won't you join us?
BlogBlast For Peace is an online community of international bloggers who "blog for peace". The first BlogBlast For Peace was held November 7, 2006. The peace globe posts spread from blog to blog to blog and became an online annual movement with thousands now participating. There are currently 50 countries involved in the project. People from all walks of life, all political and religious affiliations and beliefs lay aside their differences for one day.
It is inspirational. It is empowering. It is moving.
With respect for diversity and individual expression, peace bloggers embrace the essence of community. It has truly become a "revolution of words."

Dona nobis pacem - Latin for "grant us peace" - is displayed on peace globes available on the event coordinator's blog. Bloggers from all over the world write inspiring posts on the subject of peace, all titled with the Latin phrase, and display the globe graphic. BlogBlast For Peace is a way to get involved, a way to have a voice, an opportunity to speak out. If you would like to share in the vision for global peace, please join us. Fly a peace globe, write a post, learn about your neighbor across the continent, on the other side of the world, or even next door. Around a global table of peacemakers....anything is possible.

Thirty-three official wars and conflicts plague our planet. It is time we stand together to promote the cause of peace. On November 4, 2010 we will speak with one voice, one subject, one day.
All it takes is one post.

If words are powerful....then this matters.
Please don't miss it.

How about some Peace inspired jewelry

Headed to find some other nice things to get into ...

Blogblast for Peace "Dona Nobis Pacem"

 Blogblast for Peace  "Dona Nobis Pacem " is coming up on the 7th year . 
Let's make this the Lucky 7. If you don't have a blog , You can still help spread the word of Peace. 
You can add a Globe to Your profile on Facebook or just hit share on every globe you see. 
Below is Mimi's website address , you can find all the information there.
She is the creator of this cool event. 
On her blog she says,"Let our words start the flood of permanent peace."
"If we believe that words are powerful.....then this matters."

These were put together very well , I hope they touch Your heart as it has mine. Please share with others too. Peace

Last year hundreds of bloggers from 50 different countries took part Blogblast for Peace. ~~~~~~~~~~
There still is time to join us. :-) Get your Peace Globe templates for 2010 here:

this video was made by Crow's Feet
She wrote : All good mothers understand that children need to claim responsibility for their own actions in order to grow up to be responsible adults. Good mothers know that pointing a finger and saying, “It’s their fault” or “He/She made me do it” never solves anything. Good mothers teach their children concepts like sharing, being considerate of others and good manners. What a different world this would be if countries acted more like mothers and less like global powers.

Peace alludes us when we chase after it because it never was out “there”. Just as creation of life starts within, the responsibility of creating Peace starts within each and every one of us.

Then there is this cool one i found from last year too.

Well I will leave You with these and a wish for Peace in Your life.
