Dona Nobis Pacem – 2016

blogforpeace-2016-globe

It started ten years ago with a small crowd of regulars who visited Queen Mimi Lenox at bloggingham castle on the web.  It was a wondrous place filled with stories, games, poetry, music, and a rather fanciful dungeon.  Oh and there was a beagle, cats galore, wildlife wandering the woods, and always always a shoulder to cry on or laughs to be shared.

In this magical place her majesty had a rather large idea.  If it could be peaceful there, then why couldn’t it be peaceful everywhere, so in 2006 she told a story:  The Silence of Peace, Papa’s Marbles.  An invitation was issued to all the followers.  On just one day each year, everyone would put up the same phrase, Dona Nobis Pacem – Grant Us Peace.  This phrase would go forth around the world to proclaim a desire for all people.  What started with about 50 people and a few countries has grown.

Dona Nobis Pacem on the eve of it’s tenth anniversary has now reached all seven continents of the world (yes there is a peace globe in Antarctica) and more than 200 countries.  The globes and stories now fill several volumes that we can barely peruse just a few of the wonders.

So in this time of turmoil.  Take a break.  Get your globe.  Read the stories.  Post your globe or tell your story.  Let the wish go around the world once more with love and hope altogether say

DONA NOBIS PACEM
GRANT US PEACE

    Jamie – Where does the time go? One minute we’re peace blogging in the year 2006 and the next minute we’re here about to elect a new President…still trying to change the world one peace globe at a time.

    I am in love with the Bearatones. The third one from the left is the cutest.
