P is for Peace

Today we are working on the letter...."P".

Just a reminder that the next BlogBlast4Peace is happening on November 4, 2012.  Get your peace globes ready!

What is BlogBlast4Peace? Well, a small group of bloggers answered a challenge Mimi at Mimi Writes tossed one angst-filled October day in 2006. Mimi wanted to know what would happen if all bloggers everywhere signed their name across a globe and all posted the SAME POST on the SAME DAY.  Mimi created a graphic and made the first one.  Mimi asked them to write "Dona nobis pacem" which is Latin for "grant us peace" across the graphics image and post it on their blogs in November. Fifty-two people responded enthusiastically and soon it began to spread like a beautiful lyric across the internet.

Mimi started the Internet's first ever online movement of this kind which moves from blog to blog and continues to grow. There is something magical about the peace globes. Something that can't be explained.
