Blog Blast For Peace

Have you heard of the Blog Blast for Peace? It started in 2006 and is every year on November 4th. Obviously it already happened this year, but I just heard about it and wanted to share it so that we can get the word out.



Here is what Mimi writes:

It's inception began in 2006 with one single post and a cry for peace in our world.
A small group of bloggers answered that challenge and it began to spread across the internet in ways that humble me still. It reaches across political lines and religious creeds, abides in corners of unrest and places of hope, gives voice to individual beliefs and promotes tolerance for diversity. It celebrates the genius in each one of us, found in sparkling conversations of passionate pleas for change in the earth. It is that hope for change that motivates us.

It was the Internet's first ever online movement of its kind to invite bloggers to post the same message on the same day. From blog to blog it has moved and continues to grow. It is a virtual inscription of hope. We have been amazed to see the power and passion shown each year displayed on pages across the world. We visit each other with our prayers and scribbles, prose and poetry, art and angst, heart and hilarity - and we are moved by it. From one post to thousands of others in fifty countries and almost every state in the United States, something rare and wonderful happens on BlogBlast For Peace day.
I am privileged to witness it.
I invite you to experience it.
It's time.

  2. Hi

    So sorry I'm late in replying to what you wrote on my Blogblast post - we're having trouble with our phone and broadband connections.

    I'd be delighted if you added my Peace post (or any of the Peace posts I've done over the years) to your Peace Train. :-)

  3. Welcome to the movement. No, it's never too late to post for peace. The video you posted was made by Dawn Drover in Newfoundland, Canada especially for the 2010 BlogBlast For Peace launch.
    Isn't it awesome?

    Peace to you and yours.
    Thank you for blogging for peace in 2010.

    Mimi
