Reason #27 To Blog4Peace ~ They Took My Challenge From 100 to Zero

They took my challenge.
They've been blogging for peace for the past 86 days. Yes!! I said 86 days. It's the longest peace fest in history (well, I'd better research that but I'm betting we're close) In fact, most of them are STILL blogging the 100 Reasons. Why stop now? They've counted down from 100 almost to zero.

I have most of their wonderful posts in one article almost ready, but for now, I'd like to introduce you to some incredibly dedicated people who've made it their mission to search out just why indeed they blog for peace. You'll find some amazing posts and inspiration.

This is a partial list of those who took the 100 Days 100 Reasons to Blog4Peace Challenge and a few snippets of their work. Please visit them to read more. I will soon have them all in one page at the top of my blog. And if you blogged the challenge, please write me!!! I don't want to leave anyone out.

Travis of Trav's Thoughts
United States  Known as Dancing Bee for Peace and maker of most excellent peace globes (a Peace Globe Worker Bee extraordinaire), Travis posts a 30 day countdown each year featuring Peace Quotes. Even while blogging the 100 Reasons, he still carries on this tradition on his blog. 

Reason 62:  Because being willing to stand and defend does not mean I condone hitting first. 
Reason 61:  On the Turning Away, written by David Gilmour and Anthony Moore, recorded by Pink Floyd, released in 1987 on the album A Momentary Lapse of Reason
 Reason 60:  Because it can be challenging enough to make a prosperous life without the added difficulty of slogging through constant conflict.
Reason 59:  Because I don't know how to be indifferent to the suffering that goes on in the world.  I blog for peace because to be idle is to lend some measure of credibility to the idea that it's enough that I am not suffering in this moment.  When one suffers we all are the worse for it. 
Reason 58:  I blog for peace so that I shall continuously renew the patience and persistence I need to re-dedicate myself every year to a path of fulfillment based in knowledge, responsibility, service, and respect for diversity. 

Reason 20:  In the Lord of the Rings films, Lady Galadriel (played ethereally by Cate Blanchett, says "Even the smallest person can change the course of the future."  I am just arrogant enough to believe that I can change the future by my actions, and so my actions include blogging for Peace.
Reason 19:  Because I can't control what someone else is going to do, and sometimes I can't control my own circumstances.  The only thing I have control over is my act or not.  I choose to act as a Peace blogger.

Why do I blog for peace? If I can cause one mind to doubt, to study further, to ask questions, then I have done something that would not have been done if I had not tried. Try, won't you?

I blog for peace because I want the world to remember the words of Jimmy Carter: War may sometimes be a necessary evil. But no matter how necessary, it is always an evil, never a good. We will not learn how to live together in peace by killing each other's children. - Jimmy Carter

I blog for peace because we have ENOUGH historic dates!!!

Diane Hsz ~ Connecticut

I blog for Peace. The seasons are changing and in spite of how we treat Mother Earth, she survives. But is surviving enough? By promoting peace we bring peace not only to others, but to Mother Earth. But what does it do for us personally?
This week I participated it a drumming circle for International Peace Day. In a moment of drumming I could hear the heart beat of Mother Earth.

I blog for peace because there is hope.

 I Blog4Peace because Desmond Tutu said, "If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor."
 Real Life 101 Reason that I blog for Peace ~ Reverend Fred Shuttlesworth
Real Life 501 reason that I blog for Peace - I have and I know love for all of God's children
Reason No. 502 that I am a peace blogger - w/peace there is the opportunity for open communication and love to occur no matter the known differences. So, give peace a chance ~ after all the animals do it.
