Blogblast for Peace,
Peace & Peace Globes
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.
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.
i pray for all those who are living in conflict.
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.
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.)
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.
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.
