Somewhere in the world tonight, Dona Nobis Pacem in the blogosphere is dawning.
The year was 2006 and we'd just begun to peace blog. It is important to me that I post it each year on the Eve of Blog4Peace. It reminds me where we came from. It reminds me how a world came together for the very first time to say the same thing. It reminds me not to lose sight of the original premise: Dona nobis pacem ~ Grant us peace.
It needs to be said. Again. And again. And again. Until the day comes when we no longer need to say it. Perhaps then we can simply be grateful for peace. What a world that would be...to wake up and hear news of happiness happening on the globe instead of endless violence and hopelessness.
The longer I live the more I detest the cycle of war on our planet. The way hatred seeps into the womb of society until we've manifests nothing but more hatred. I wonder sometimes if the struggle between good and evil will ever cease to exist, or will we be perpetually locked into battle with ourselves and those who seek power instead of peace.
So, I'll say it. Until it no longer needs to be said.
Dona nobis pacem
Grant us peace.
