Dona Nobis Pacem

Dona Nobis Pacem…..Latin for Grant Us Peace

Today is Blog Blast for Peace Day!  The brainchild of Mimi Lennox back in 2006, there are now blog blast participants from at least 44 different countries.  The idea being that on this day, everyone will use the same subject line in their blog post for PEACE, sharing their hopes for PEACE ON EARTH. To visit more Peace Globe participants, click here.

Here is my Peace Globe….. #1119.  It was done the old fashioned way with scissors and glue, as I do not know my way around PhotoShop….yet 🙂


Take a few moments to think about the power of Peace and how each of us have the ability to make it a part of our everyday lives.

You can hear Mimi Lenox, the Peace Globe Movement originator, on The Doctor Anonymous Show on blog radio tonight, Show #56.
