Dona Nobis Pacem #Blog4Peace 2018...Words are Powerful


Today, November 4th 2018 is the 12th year of the BlogPeace project, started by Mimi Lenox and something that has grown into a world-wide phenomenon. This years theme is Words are Powerful

Words of Love, Words of Hate, Words of Thanks, Words of Peace...

I think the cats  are doing their best to bring a grateful peace into my life, and I get a lot of happiness in helping others and so I know there is Love in the World, but wonder if Peace is just a Dream... 

Bloggers all around the world are doing the same today...a collective project, making their Peace Globes. Individuals who want peace while the governments all around the world seem to be at opposite ends of the spectrum. Humans not only screaming hate but acting out on that hate..

I have become very cynical about trying to elect officials that have the common man's interest at heart...they seem so distanced from what is reality. But in the words of Emily Dickinson, which I used when composing this years Peace Globe, hope is...
Hope is the thing with feathers  
That perches in the soul,  
And sings the tune without the words,  
And never stops at all,  
   
And sweetest in the gale is heard;          
And sore must be the storm  
That could abash the little bird  
That kept so many warm.  
I’ve heard it in the chillest land,  
And on the strangest sea;         
Yet, never, in extremity,  
It asked a crumb of me.
At the heart of this project is hope and when people from 6 continents and 214 countries & territories also work for peace, how could we not post our Peace Globe today?!

Some of our hopes for the day...

purr loudly...
don't hiss at each other...
breath deeply (especially of catnip)...
and love just as deeply...
(remember kneading = love)

  1. Everyone wants to live in peace, to have a peaceful world for our children.........may we find a way to achieve it, may those in power use words of respect and unity and inclusion. We live in hope.
