It is once again time for the annual Blog Blast for Peace. I started this tradition back in 2009 on Pricilla’s blog and have carried forward here. Every year hundreds of blogs and microblogs gather together for one day to share their collective energy for Peace.
I have to admit it’s a bit discouraging. Since I did my first post I feel the world has become a far more violent place. There are mass shootings on what seems like a daily basis in this country and hatred towards minorities and non-Christians seems to be rising at an alarming level.
I haven’t completely given up because I HAVE to believe that we are better as a nation than the worst among us. If I am proven wrong well – we deserve what we get.
So let us for one day try to put forth all of our positive energy towards peace. Towards acceptance of those that are different than we are perhaps in the way they look, the color of their skin or the way they love or the way they worship. It doesn’t make them anything other than different. Different isn’t bad it’s what makes this country so wonderful. If we were all the same it would be an awfully boring world.
I would not want to live in a world where I could only have vanilla ice cream every single day of my life.
So, go forth and think peaceful thoughts. At least for one day.
Pet a cat – the purrs are very healing. (I don’t have scientific proof of that only my personal experience.)
To honor this 10th Blog Blast for Peace post I give you the first nine should you want to revisit them:
They sat down for Peace
They stood up for Peace
They gave War the raspberry
