All Peace Is Breaking Out ~ In France

A beautiful blogger in Paris, France has given us a lot to think about. Barbara, who writes "Home In France" wanted to know how many women had been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. She did some research and has posted an interesting account with photographs and snippets of these remarkable women. I want to know more about all of them. I would like to thank Barbara for honoring them. You may read that here.

Barbara also posted some amazing photographs of The Wall for Peace - Le mur pour la paix - which is across from the The Eiffel Tower. Forty-eight different languages spell the word peace.
Much like we send our messages of peace around the world on peace globes each year, visitors can put their messages of peace in the chinks of the wall. The wall was inaugurated in 2000 by the President of the French Republic.  

Just one of many incredible peace posts I am finding! It was a wonderful day and just the beginning.
Thank you all.
I'm off to read and visit!
This is Mimi Pencil Skirt reporting live from the lovely land of the Peace Globes.
Visit our collection of peace art in the Peace Globe Gallery. Your peace art has been amazing this year!

(Barbara's globe was designed by the wonderful Sanni at Pimp-Your-Blog in Germany)

Hi Mimi,
WOW ! Thank you for the write up ! I'am flattered.
It was my pleasure to share these photos of this very touching monument.

Anyone that will one day be heading to Paris, cannot miss it. Across from the Eiffel tower, keep on going towards the lawns in front of the ├ęcole militaire. And voila.

I like the artistic and humanitarian values of this monument. Some say peace with sqiggly lines or geometric type symbols.Others with words using our same alphabet. And there is even the word for peace in Braille.
So cool :)

Peace to all, and Thank you again Mimi.

Hi Mimi,

thanks for sharing this! Though I live in Europe myself, I wasn't aware of this Wall of Peace..

It sounds somewhat similar to Yoko Ono's initative, the Imagine Peace Tower in Iceland, you're probably aware of?

I love what you're doing with this site, I'm really sorry I wasn't able to join in on your inspiring Blog Blast for peace..

Peace to you,
