November 4, 2011 Dona nobis pacem


White Dog, The Other White Dog, Another White Dog, Still Another White Dog and Yet Another White Dog join paws with bloggers all over the world today with the single purpose of asking for Peace.

This is the 8th launch of BlogBlast For Peace aka Dona Nobis Pacem in the blogosphere.

What is it? In 2006 someone wondered what would happen if all bloggers everywhere signed their name across a globe and all posted the SAME POST on the SAME DAY. Bloggers were challenged to write "Dona nobis pacem" which is Latin for "grant us peace" across globe 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.

It was the Internet's first ever online movement of its kind to invite bloggers to post the same message on the same day. From blog to blog it has moved and continues to grow. It is a virtual inscription of hope.

Since then, "peace bloggers" write. They draw. They paint beautiful words and images. They help and encourage each other. They may differ in philosophy and politic, but they find a way to peaceably debate. And then they sign their names to a promise. To a hope. To a dream we all have. To one day live in a world of peace.

If enough of us say it, if enough of us believe it, if enough of us live it.....that has to be a positive force in the world with a power that is unstoppable.

Why? We agree with Mimi, the day’s founder:

Because I believe in the inherent goodness of people, deep down, to do the right thing. If I didn't, there would be no reason to hope for change. In our individual trials and collectively as humankind, there has to be a spark of goodness in every soul. We were made for greatness.

We won't get there without the goodness.
Join us, please.
