Thank You Renny!

By , June 4, 2008 9:54 pm

My Dona Nobis Pacem post was a tad on the dark side this time. These days it is hard for me to think of peace and not free-associate with “gloomy.”

But one positive post that really struck me was by RennyBA from Norway. You should all go and read his words.

His point is that we, as bloggers, can make a difference in this world. He argues that there is a relationship between “peace” and “blogging.” Blogging connects people, and since it creates connections, it MUST ultimately lead to peace. I like that argument.

  • I like the fact that I can read the words of people all over the world and respond to those words.
  • I like it that people from all over the US join in the weekly Unplugged Project, as well as Spain, Canada, the UK, Taiwan, and Fiji so far. We leave our differences behind and all come together once a week in a common endeavor benefiting our children.
  • I like it that Renny, half a world away in Norway, can lift my spirits here in rural Arizona, USA.

Most people are wonderful.

Small epiphanies like this are why I blog.

Thank you Renny!

    Your welcome; I’m flattered and humble of course. I do believe in this and your post is very inspiring to me. I mean: It works if we work it, so lets work it, we’re worth it‘.

    I’ve been browsing around a bit too and find your ‘unplugged projects’ very interesting. To make a better world, we adults have to be aware of our responsibilities as role models too. When I grew up (I’m 55), there was no technology to plug in, so my playground was the nature and that was inspiring enough.

    I try to give my and other children the same experience and its great fun for all ages. Let me give you some examples:

    * Just Farming around
    * Making contact with the animals
    * Easter bunny eggs hunt

    I’ll gladly link some with you to show the world it works :-)
