60 Ways 2 Peace: Day 1 through Day 18

Mimi from Mimi Writes says:
There are thousands of peace bloggers in the world today. They come from six continents and 202 countries and territories. Every post, status update, tweet, and peace globe is different. But the message is the same.
Dona nobis pacem ~ Grant us peace
You don't have to be a rabble-rouser, a tree hugger, a hippie or a street protester to speak strongly for peace in the world. All you need is a quiet determination, a blog, a Facebook profile, a Twitter account, an Instagram, or a website! Any other place on the web you call home.
And one more thing.....a belief in the power of words.
We believe that words are powerful. This matters.
Mimi has challenged the world to post 60 Ways 2 Peace. For the 60 days leading up to Blog4Peace on November 4th, we are to post one way to be peaceful each day. People have been using any social media platform available (FB, Twitter, Instagram, Blogging, Tumblr, etc) with the hopes of a peaceful transformation in 60 days.
I have been posting my daily way to peace on Facebook and here are the ones I have posted for the first 18 days.

Day 1: Volunteer at the local animal shelter.
Day 2: Show love and kindness to all creatures, great and small.
Day 3: Make peace a goal. Strive to meet that goal each day, in some special way.
Day 4: Provide food and shelter to those in need.
Day 5: Always tell the truth.
Day 6: Spend time in nature.
Day 7: All remember the wrong, but focus out how to prevent those wrongs from happening again.
Day 8: Volunteer at the local homeless shelter.
Day 9: Smile at least one per day.
Day 10: Never lose hope.
Day 11: Peace can only penetrate a heart that is truly open to it.
Day 12: Talk to someone you trust.
Day 13: Try to be open minded when listening to others.
Day 14: Volunteer at the local hospital
Day 15: Say what you mean and mean what you say.
Day 16: Finding peace within will allow you to see obstacles with reason.
Day 17: Genuinely care about others.
Day 18: Spread peace across the globe.
