Dona Nobis Pacem


My blog post will be short and shamefully inadequate today, if you compare it to the beautiful work done by so many people on the bloggosphere for this event. So I won't compare it. I'll enjoy the moment and pray for peace, along with my little boy who believes, as I do, that the world is still fundamentally a good place filled with caring people. This movement confirms that, doesn't it? And, as I look at the beautiful Peace Globe designed for me by an extraordinary and precious friend (a million thanks and big hugs, Vinny!), my heart softens and I wonder at the people who can look into the eyes of a child and NOT see peace.
Peace be with all people, today and always.

Short and powerful - that's your Blog Blast post, Coco! I agree that the optimism of children is the fuel that keeps our world from imploding sometimes. It's good to look at Creation through the eyes of a child and expect that we can all get along.

Peace to you.

I found you from Dona Nobis Pacem. I love your site. I’m going to poke around a little bit, but don’t worry I’ll put everything back where I found it!!

I think your post is wonderful. I agree ... there ARE many kind good hearted people in the world. The greed and arrogance of a few causes so much pain.

Peace and a few hugs from Hollydale

Your globe is beautiful in its simplicity. The children who will live with our decisions are at the heart of why we all want peace.

Great song selections

Yours is a wonderful post, and illustrates perfectly why we need peace! Your sweet and happy son, and children everywhere, deserve no less than a world where love and acceptance are what matter most. Well done...:)

Each peace post comes from the author's heart and so each peace post is not only adequate, but is cherished as a worthy part of the movement. It's good to "see" you, dear one.

Peace.

Sweetie, it wouldn't be Blogblast for Peace without you.

And yes, our hearts soften when we look into the face of a child... and we work for peace.

Peace to us all, my friend.
