The Peace Meme


Join The Revolution

Queen Mimi royal resident of Bloggingham Castle at Mimi Writes and the Blog Blast for Peace has commissioned me to "Meme the BlogBlast". When the edict comes from Bloggingham, I as a humble servant must obey, besides this is really important.
"Words are sacred. They deserve respect. If you get the right
ones, in the right order, you can nudge the world a little.”
- Tom Stoppard
Twice a year in June and November all over the blogosphere and around the world, we try to get the words in the right order to nudge the world just a little. The words are "Dona Nobis Pacem" - Grant Us Peace.

These words have no party, no political stance, no sides taken, just one ardent wish for the whole of mankind: Dona Nobis Pacem. We need to spread the word even farther, so in preparation for the next Blog Blast on November 6, we are memeing Peace.


Here are the rules and the story.

(1) Copy this into a post
(2) ADD YOUR NAME to the bottom of the tag list
(3) Tag as many people as you'd like.

The Peace Globe project began in the fall of 2006 with a simple post from one blog, Mimi Writes. The post ignited a flame in the blogosphere. The flame became a passion. The passion became a movement. It amazingly traveled from blog to blog to blog across the globe. Bloggers wrote passionate articles on what peace means to them, along with the promise of three Latin words scribbled on a globe - Dona Nobis Pacem (Grant Us Peace) - branded with the integrity of their names or blog names. It was positively inspiring to watch. And it began to happen all over the world - from Singapore to China to Afghanistan to Brooklyn.

It was simple. And powerful.

In less than three weeks bloggers from all across the globe will blog for peace. We will speak with one voice. One subject. One day.
Won't you join us? November 6, 2008

How To Get Your Peace Globe In 4 easy steps!

1. Right CLICK and SAVE the peace globe below or choose from other designs here.


2. Sign the globe using Paint, Photoshop or a similar graphics tool. Decorate the globe anyway you wish. You can even include the name of your blog. Click here for hundreds of inspiring examples from previous BlogBlasts.

3. Return the peace globe to mimi via email to mimiwrites2005@yahoo.com - Let me know your blog's name and url by leaving a comment and signing the Mr. Linky. Your submission will be numbered and dated in the official gallery . Your globe and post will be listed on the Official BlogBlast For Peace website and The Peace Globe Posts page.

Here's the most important part.

4. On November 6, 2008 DISPLAY YOUR GLOBE IN A POST on your blog. Title your post "Dona Nobis Pacem". This is important. The goal is for all blog post titles to say the same thing on the same day. Write about peace or simply fly your globe.
