Get your own peace globe at Mimi Writes

I have been tagged by Mimi, the Queen of Memes to join the Blog for Peace Project
The story.

The Peace Globe project began in the fall of 2006 with a simple post from one blog, Mimi Writes. The post ignited a flame in the blogosphere. The flame became a passion. The passion became a movement. It amazingly traveled from blog to blog to blog across the globe. Bloggers wrote passionate articles on what peace means to them, along with the promise of three Latin words scribbled on a globe - Dona Nobis Pacem (Grant Us Peace) - branded with the integrity of their names or blog names. It was positively inspiring to watch. And it began to happen all over the world - from Singapore to China to Afghanistan to Brooklyn.
It was simple. And powerful.
In less than three weeks bloggers from all across the globe will blog for peace.We will speak with one voice. One subject. One day.Won't you join us?
Join The Revolution

Here are the rules
(1) Copy this into a post (2) ADD YOUR NAME to the bottom of the tag list(3) Tag as many people as you'd like.

Here's the most important part.
4. On November 6, 2008 DISPLAY YOUR GLOBE IN A POST. Title your post "Dona Nobis Pacem". This is important. The goal is for all blog post titles to say the same thing on the same day. Write about peace or simply fly your globe.

    your blog is nice
    but don't you feel your themnes were too complex ?

  • Lilly 23.10.08

    Kim, you are so very talented. I love the drawing of Alexander and Charlotte - and what a great concept the 'A Royal Tag for Peace' is. Thanks for sharing that.

  • Amy Lilley Designs 23.10.08

    OHHHHHHHH Kim, how you challenge your readers...this looks like an amazing project and I will give it a whirl...I LOVE your piece of Alexander and Charlotte...beauteous, and the quote underneath, very stirring and true...

  • Kim 23.10.08

    hi Sasidesigns
    this was a complex post and took me hours to compile....
    hopefully future posts won't be so complex ... :)

    thanks Lilly...
    this is an old drawing of my children...they've grown up a bit since then...
    Mimi's Globe for Peace Project is a wonderful way of promoting peace

    hello Amy..'s one of my favourite drawings of the kids... and I thought the quote matched up perfectly...
    haha challenging all it took me ages to get the format right :)
    next year I'll keep it more simple lol..

  • Sage Ravenwood 23.10.08

    Beautiful words, along with a serene beautiful portrait. I'll have to give the peace challenge some thought.

    I've highlighted some heavy subject matters so far in my own journal, I think my readers are going to start thinking I'm a billboard for what ails the world. The way I see it is, the world could use more voices who are willing to keep the door open to some issues. My latest venture was Domestic Violence. October shares herself with Cancer Awareness as well.

    It is a tempting subject with the war raging in Iraq, peace is indeed a hope on the horizon. Thanks for this entry. (Hugs)Indigo

  • Mimi Lenox 23.10.08

    Kim - Thank you so much for posting this today. I couldn't be happier that you are participating. You bring and artist's flair and heart to the project. The portraits on the globe....stunning work. See you on the 6th. I appreciate you taking the time to get this up and running. I hope it brings in more Australian peace bloggers and bloggers from all over the world. We now have 41 countries (Czech Republic checked in tonight.)


  • Kim 23.10.08

    thank you Indigo...
    I know what you mean..
    it's been a busy month with blog action for Poverty and Breast Cancer Awareness month....
    I personally donate to the Cancer Foundation as I lost my Dad to Cancer....
    It would be great for you to join in on this project ...and although it was time consuming for was very satisfying...especially finding that quote :)

  • Kim 23.10.08

    thanks Mimi...
    congratulations!!!41 countries....that's terrific..

  • John M. Mora 25.10.08

    I commend you - and what a tender loving image. Peace.

    Go to the desert at night and see all the starsd and think about all the distances and here else life might be.....

    Electical lights have distorted our place in the universe - we see billboards and skyscrapers and do not realize we have created walls that shield us from the Creation.


  • Anonymous 25.10.08

  • Kim 25.10.08
