Dona Nobis Pacem


It's Blog Blast for Peace Day!

Mimi, Queen of Memes started this entire movement singlehandedly, and it's grown and has reached every corner of the universe and probably beyond....I think I saw an alien peace globe go by yesterday, as a matter of fact.

There'll be lots of postings today about peace. Peace of mind, peace on earth, peace, not war. Whatever you perceive it to be. As we're all unique persons, so too will be our conceptions of what peace means to each one of us.

My "peace" starts within. If I'm not at peace with myself, my world will reflect that. So I work hard at maintaining an inner calmness, first and foremost. When my world gets out of sync and things are not exactly as I expected them to be, I look inside and see what's going on there and if I can, take care of it. So too should be the way of the world. If only "they" would or could get rid of the hatred in "their" hearts (and you can insert anyone for "they") maybe the world could be a better place. Imagine that!

John Lennon:
Imagine all the people living life in peace. You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope someday you'll join us, and the world will live as one.t's up to each one of us to make that happen.

Indira Gandhi:
You can't shake hands with a clenched fist.

Jimi Hendrix:
When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace.

Martin Luther King, Jr.:
One day we must come to see that peace is not merely a distant goal we seek, but that it is a means by which we arrive at that goal. We must pursue peaceful ends through peaceful means.

Better than a thousand hollow words is one word that brings peace.
Buddha (560-483 B.C.)

All we are saying is give peace a chance.
John Lennon (1940-1980)

"When we feel love and kindness toward others, it not only makes others feel loved and cared for, but it helps us also to develop inner happiness and peace."
