June 6th is the day of the 2nd Blog Blast For Peace. Last November, Mimi Lennox organized the first Peace Blog Blast, and it was apparently a resounding success.
The idea is that anyone who wishes to participate should write a peace-related post on June 6th entitled “Dona Nobis Pacem” (“Grant Us Peace” in Latin). At Mimi’s site you can also create your own “Peace Globe” to put on your post and for Mimi to put on her site too. She also has a banner that you can get (like the one in my left sidebar) to help spread the word.
I like this idea because it simply involves the idea of getting together for peace, regardless of political and religious affiliations, or even nationality. It is a positive statement rather than a negative, reactionary one. Obsidian Kitten has a wonderful post (which is far more thoughtfully written than this hurried one) about the power of positive energy.
I just wanted to let people know about it. Feel free to join in or not. Visit Mimi’s blog for more info plus banners and globes.
