Dona nobis pacem - November 6, 2008

Give Back Peace

Give back father, give back mother,
Give back grandpa, give back grandma,
Give back boys, give back girls.

Give me back myself, give me back men
Linked to me.

As long as men live as men,
Give back peace,
Peace that never crumbles.

by Sankichi Toge

Helen Keller: "I do not want the peace that passeth understanding. I want the understanding which bringeth peace."

John Lennon: "Imagine all the people living life in peace. You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope someday you'll join us, and the world will live as one."



  1. Excellent post. I love your globe! Peace to you and those you love...

  2. I like your quotes, especially the first. It's painfully true.

    Happy Peace day wishes to you!

  3. Wonderful Blogblast post!

  7. I.Love.The Helen Keller quote.

    Terrific post!

  8. Ya know, I've had many, many people tell me I'm a dreamer and yes, I am -I confess to that. But now I realize I'm also in darned good company. Now, don't try to tell me that dreams don't, won't, can't possibly come true cause I know -and you know too -that would be a lie.
    WE CAN make the happen!

  9. Oh -and I got so caught up there, I forgot to thank you for visiting, commenting and to ask you to come by again -I'll make coffee, or tea -whatever -maybe even cookies or supper or brunch.

  10. Thanks for the visit Miss Shannon! Sending you peace and puurs from Italy! HAPPY PEACE DAY!

  12. Thank you for sharing ;--)
    Thich Nhat Hanh teaches that ‘Peace is in every step’ … a choice in every instant no matter what’s happening around or within us. As each of us blogs for peace today, we join our minds and hearts together to create this reality in our world.
    Hugs and blessings,

  13. Great post and quotes. Dona Nobis Pacem
