As many of you know, the "Blog Blast For Peace" will happen on November 5. To get ready for this day when the globes will literally fly around the globe, today is an open invitation for everyone to join in. It also gives me a chance to use my favorite quote:
"Words... They're innocent, neutral, precise, standing for this, describing that, meaning the other, so if you look after them you can build bridges across incomprehension and chaos. But when they get their corners knocked off, they're no good any more... I don't think writers are sacred, but words are. They deserve respect. If you get the right ones in the right order, you can nudge the world a little or make a poem which children will speak for you when you're dead."
— Tom Stoppard (The Real Thing)Bloggers love words. We send them out into empty air hoping someone will listen and respond. On November 5, we will be sending out three words with one voice with one goal. We will do it in pictures, songs, poems, and articles which at their heart say only one thing: Dona Nobis Pacem: LET THERE BE PEACE
BlogBlast For Peace Meme ~ Join The Revolution
(I'm officially tagging everyone in the universe)Here are the rules and the story.
Copy this into a post and 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. We will speak with one voice. One subject. One day. Won't you join us?
On 5 November 2009, DISPLAY YOUR GLOBE IN A POST. 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 so that they register on all the media under one name. Write about peace that day or simply fly your globe. Get your globe to design HERE as well as see some of the Peace globes that have already been designed.
YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE TAGGED TO PLAY.
