We participated in peace marches in Washington, Boston and a zillion other places during the Vietnam War. We were proud to be part of Mimi Lenox’s first Blogblast for Peace and again glad to shout out “peace” now. The more of you who copy the following as a meme and post it, the more attention the Peace Movement will get. Plus it can’t hurt your readership to be linked to great bloggers from all four corners of the earth. WTIT: The Blog is a very proud particpate in this year’s Blogblast for Peace.
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?
