"If there were to be a universal sound depicting peace, I would surely vote for the purr" is the sentiment written on their gorgeous June 6, 2007 peace globe.

42 by CableGirl~ Quoting Bob Dylan's "Masters of War" ~ She writes this on her June 6, 2007 peace globe "Peace is a choice each one of us makes. Give the next generation the chance to live freely and peacefully. It's never too late."

Andrena ~ Getting a Grip on Grace ~ A pastor in Philadephia. She writes "Peace is allowing others to be who they are, as God created them... What a beautiful concept." Read this lovely article written for this day when she asked her young son the question "What does peace mean to you?" She writes - among other things -"a world with war and without having that split second of fear whenever we hear a plane flying too low, my son still looks at me out the corner of his eye to see if I react to planes in the sky.
We are from New York."
In June, 2007 Andrena starts off with a Peace Blast and ends with A MidSummers' Day Peace in which she led her congregation in a demonstration for inner city peace. See the moving video on her site.

That individuals, coming together as a unified voice, can bring about peace on earth. Is it possible? I like to think so." and includes this famous quote "I like to believe that people in the long run are going to do more to promote peace than our governments. Indeed, I think that people want peace so much that one of these days governments had better get out of the way and let them have it.

Cats, Goats and Quotes ~ Bobbie and Bunch ~Conyers, Georgia ~
"Until he extends the circle of hiscompassion to all living things,man will not himself find peace" ~-- Albert Schweitzer --

Chana's Go Forth And... ~ Alberta, Canada ~
quoting John Denver..Yes there still is the time to turn around and make all hatred cease and give another name to living and we can call it peace

Cheysuli ~ A Siamese Cat
Take a nap. Meditate on peace. Think about it. If you visualize peace, you will find it-probably. If you have trouble, then maybe you need to work on what’s inside you. If you don’t have peace inside, then you can’t very well find peace in the world. Be a cat for the day–let go of attatchment. Let life flow. Stop worrying about controlling things. Just lay back and say “FEED ME ALREADY!!!!”
You might be surprised at the morsels the universe drops in your mouth."
My favorite quote from Cheysuli "As a presidential candidate, I am a strong proponent of peace. I feel that naps are far more important than war and any war that disrupts naptime is completely without merit." (May, 2007)
June 6, 2007 peace post ".......At the basest level, we are all alike. The way we seek out these things and the exact things that cause either love or sufering are different for each of us. When we can understand and respect that diversity we can have peace."
I'd say Cheysuli is a pretty smart cat. He gets my vote!
Oh, I forgot to tell you. He's running for President.

It is my fervent hope, however, that the civilizations of man have progressed. That ultimately, if we are to continue to exist we can move forward to some greater existence barely fathomed by you or me.

Country Dew ~ Blue Country Magic ~ Virginia
It seems to me that peace must start within each of us, within our own souls. We alone can find the solitude and quiet we must nurture within, for hearts at peace do not find ways to force suffering upon others.
April 21, 2007 post about the Virginia Tech tragedy and peace globes
Friday, October 12, 2007 "...It's nice to feel like you're part of something for awhile. November 7,2007 ..."by the way, is the day after election day in the United States. Everyone please vote on November 6, even if you think it is a waste of time"

Critique My Blog ~ Billy Mac ~ Pennsylvania
The "Blogosphere" ..It's a thing that has evolved into a network that is 70 million strong and growing leaps and bounds. It can be used for good and bad. I think we should channel it for good.

CS ~ Another Tangential Thinker ~ Appalachia USA ~ who writes....
"Will it make even the tiniest difference? I don't know. Maybe one person will see the peaceful demonstration and think for a moment about the insanity of continuing to manufacture WMDs. Just one. So it is with these globes. Maybe one person who hasn't thought much about it will see one globe and start to reconsider the state of the world. Just one. Good enough for me.

Peace on's idealistic, but it's an idea of hope - In a world that needs all the hope that it can grasp. And again promoting peace for the next Blogblast he wrote " I don't think anyone really knew the impact this movement would have until, on that day, you just kept clicking and clicking, and saw globe after globe after globe. I was quite moved by that day." Read more here.

7 ноември ще бъде първият Blogblast for Peace ден! Този проект е започнат от Мими Ленокс и има една единствена цел: на 7 ноември да бъде публикувана една картинка (която съм качил тук) във всеки блог по света. Тя трябва да бъде подписана от авторите на блогове и по този начин на уречената дата всеки, който прелиства блоговете или търси нещо конкретно ще се сблъсква с тази картинка. И когато я видиш в пет блога последователно ще се замислиш, поне за малко. Надявам се това начинание да успее и ако сега не се получи замисъла, то догодина да стане. Посетете блога на Мими и се включете!Dona Nobis Pacem: Grant me Peace!

One Globe graffic with a beautiful inscription can do this, for it has momentum......Yes, Mimi and I are Dreamers. We know now we're not alone. Beautiful Globes are spinning 'round us.

It's easy to look at major international issues and wish for peace; it's another thing entirely to understand that the way to peace on a large scale is establishing peace in my own life.

October 30, 2007 Polling Tuesday post "Give Peace A Chance"

Mother of Invention ~ Spilling Out! ~ Ontario, Canada

Natalee ~ Just Gotta Hang On ~ Oklahoma ~ "I voted. Did you?"

Nessa ~ The Chysalis Stage ~New Jersey ~ I will spend the 24 hours from midnight to midnight on that day practicing peace. I will not call other drivers assholes. I will even refrain from pointing out the really stupid mistakes that my new co-worker makes every two seconds even though she says she the best thing since white bread. And if I happen to go into Wal-Mart, I will not make disgusted faces at the excruciatingly slow and lazy people that work there. I know, just call me Mahatma.

Obsidian Kitten ~ Perry, Michigan ~ "It's more difficult to be for something, because then you have to come up with creative solutions for problems and work toward those, rather than just rail against all the wrongs--which is easy because problems tend to be so self-evident and, well, anyone can rant and rave and wave a sign in the air. (I get angry and wave my arms around a lot.)....So now I'm not quite as busy hating the war, despising Bush, being disgusted with the whole situation--it all really was wearing me out. I'm just trying to focus on peace. Dona nobis pacem. You go, Mimi.Peace, my friends. And blessed be."

Odat's Mumblings ~ Grant Us Peace ~New York, New York ~ Peace....a small but powerful word that I feel inspires smiles everytime I say it...and I say it a lot. Sometimes people look at me like I'm crazy but that's ok. So I'm keeping it simple today too.......

Peter Haslam ~ Necessary Skills ~ North York, ON Canada ~ "At first it was a single voice singing into the silence. Then from the shadows another voice joined to be a duet. Slowly voices joined one by one until it was heard around the world. Not realistic you might say. Maybe so but I want to be one of the voices singing out to pierce the darkness of fear and violence.
How about you?" **

Tom ~ The Creativity Blog ~ Virginia ~ Inspiration: The Peace Globe Initiative ~Odd, but as I have thought about what to write today, what has struck me is the peace in my own life, how for the most part a life that is largely in turmoil, has become more peaceful, just by focusing on peace. That should tell us something. It's what we focus on that changes what we see and what we do.
Tom ~ A Day After The Peace Blogs ~ Did it change anything? Well, it changed me. I'd bet it changed some of the others who took part as well. And that's a start. You never know, when you plant a garden, which seeds will grow and which ones will fall fallow. But you plant anyway.

What it might do, though, is make people stop and think. That's all he asks.Maybe next year a few hundred will become a few thousand. Maybe the year after it will be tens of thousands. Maybe the year after a million. Who knows?
