Back in 2014, Mimi from Mimi Writes challenged the world to post 60 Ways 2 Peace. For the 60 days leading up to Blog4Peace on November 4th, 2014, we were to post one way to be peaceful each day. People used any social media platform available (FB, Twitter, Instagram, Blogging, Tumblr, etc) with the hopes of a peaceful transformation in 60 days.
