Join The Revolution ~ BlogBlast For Peace

From my Thirty Days Thirty Reasons series written in 2008
War and Peace.
Sadly still relevant.

Need a reason to fly a peace globe? Here are thirty good ones.

Reason #28 Iran
Need I say more?

Reason #29 Nuclear weapons
Reason #30 September 11, 2001 and the War on Terror
(I am currently researching the last 3)

Come on. Join the Revolution.

BlogBlast For Peace
If I believe that words are powerful, then this matters.

The state of our world is pretty sad. Especially when you see it listed. Good God there is so much violence out there. I will be flying my peace globe.

So many conflicts. The trouble is many of them can't remember why they are fighting, but do it because their ancesters did.

Travis said...

I keep thinking that maybe it's ok that some ancient enmities exist. Sometimes you just don't like your neighbor, and nobody should force you to.

Maybe we should focus instead on not acting on our dislike of our neighbor. That might be a good first step.

I don't need 31 reasons; I have just one in mind: my kids.

Vodka Mom said...

i pray for all those who are living in conflict.

Akelamalu said...

We don't need a reason to pray for Peace and fly a Peace Globe Mimi, but thankyou for reminding us of all the conflict, sometimes we forget.

I'm thinking of you hon. xxxx

Dear Mimi,

Your Dad as well as you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

You are remarkable to be doing the blogblast for peace, especially at such a hard time in your family. I hope you won't do more than you can. I know everyone will understand if you aren't able to do as much with the blogblast for peace this time. You started a momentum which will continue regardless.

I'll send you my peace globe when I do it but I'm serious about you taking care of yourself. If you have to step back from your beautiful labor of love (blogblast for peace) this year, do it. We'll fly our peace globes even if you need to take time away from it.

As ever, Carver

Mimi, Great post! Hope your Dad is doing better. I'm so sorry I didn't know sooner - my bad. :(

Let all live as they shall. We should not enforce on them our rules as we would not want their rules enforced upon us.

The Gal Herself said...

My peace globe (you have it already and it's Blogger is set to post it) was inspired by the South and West Sides of Chicago. School children are being murdered almost daily because some souls are so impoverished they believe "turf" matters more than a life. Perhaps the key to a lasting peace is concentrating on our young.

(And I'm making a small waving/salute gesture to your dad, who is in my thoughts.)

Mimi Lenox said...

Mejis - The state of the world is in pitiful shape right now. But I know we make a difference.

Thank you for doing your part. It's wonderful.

Mimi Lenox said...

Jean-Luc - My research has proven this out!

I think we are heading in the right direction. It seems there a far fewer wars, conflicts, and genocides than there were two or three hundred years ago.
