Please join us in this movement

Shinade at The Painted Veil tagged me with the Blog Blast for peace. I had plenty of fun designing my picture. I am also going to recommend if you have a few spare moments, to join this movement! Shinade explains this as follows

Peace is a wonderful thing. Yet many all over the world are not walking out into their gardens and catching glimpses of flowers, bees, butterflies or any other thing that could be defined as beautiful.

Instead they face each day filled with fear, hunger, and sheer horror at the sights they and their children must endure every single day:genocide, bombs,funeral after funeral, burying the dead, mass graves go unmarked, their view and their hope is bleak.

So thousands of us, from all over the globe, join together every six months to make a simple post titled: Dona Nobis Pacem. We all hit the publish button at the same time. The plea for global peace makes a strong resounding wave all across this powerful new media known as the blogosphere.

On this one day no matter your country, your heritage, faith, your religious belief, or your lack of, on this day we stand as one.

We stand together for peace.

Please join us in this movement and post a peace globe on November 6, 2008.

The rules for this meme are very simple:

*1. Please visit Mimi at Mimi Writes and pick up a blank globe to decorate.

*2. Write a post on your blog announcing the upcoming event.

*3. Tag everyone you can think of so they too can help spread the word.

*4.Please leave a comment and let me know that you have picked up the tag.

*5.Please return after your post is made and let the person know that tagged you that you have completed the tag so that they can add your name to their list.

*6. Make sure to link this meme to the original source- Shinade

*7. Please link back to the person who tagged you.

*8. You don't have to be tagged to play. Anyone reading this please join in.

I see that a lot of my friends, and blogs I follow have already been tagged. I take this moment to offically tag anyone that I have dropped on in the past.


  1. Kimmy this is a great post and I love your globe.

    I may change mine...I always do. I have added you to my list.

    Also I forgot to tell everyone....but please drop back by Mimi's and leave her a comment if you haven't already so that she can add you to her list.

    Somewhere there you will find her email addy for this project.

    Send in your globe to her and it will be added to the slide show that she provides for everyone.

    Hope you have a great day. I am just getting starting!


  2. What a moving plea for peace. You have just inspired me...again. Brava to the blogosphere.

    See you on the 6th.
    (I have added you to my sidebar list). Thank you very much for promoting this. Just awesome.
