New Peace Globes for The Mahers

The Mahers - Manny and Kathleen - have a thing for peace. This thoughtful and prolific couple took it upon themselves this week to add new peace globes to the gallery, both writing posts on the subject..... and promoting BlogBlast For Peace - which is fast approaching another launch in June 2008.
Kathleen is schooling herself in Photoshop to add a bit of spark to her original globe (at left) and designed her husband's new globe so that he could participate in the campaign.
I'd say she's done a spectacular job.

I really appreciate their collaborative charm in the blogosphere.
What a dynamic duo.
Visit them and see what the fuss is about.

4000 Dead. But who's counting?

Not counting those who found themselves in triage and died later (They aren't counted in the official tally.) Not counting the women and children.
Not counting those who suffered so tremendously they ended their own lives after returning home. Not counting the maimed and the wounded and the scarred, the bruised and the sick. Not counting the tortured, the kidnapped, and the journalists in harm's way. Not counting the Missing In Action.
Not counting the 89,000 Iraqi civilian casualties.

I don't want to debate why we're there, how we got there or whether their deaths were "in vain".
They're dead.

My voice counts. Bring them home.

Meanwhile, we'll all just count.

4001, 4002, 4003, 4004, 4005.....

A sampling of peace globe posts that took place in the blogosphere during the first BlogBlast in 2006. I was inspired. You will be too.

Honored with a peace globe created by SGT DUB

Finnegan and Buddy ~ Durham, North Carolina

"If there were to be a universal sound depicting peace, I would surely vote for the purr" is the sentiment written on their gorgeous June 6, 2007 peace globe.

42 by CableGirl~ Quoting Bob Dylan's "Masters of War" ~ She writes this on her June 6, 2007 peace globe "Peace is a choice each one of us makes. Give the next generation the chance to live freely and peacefully. It's never too late."

Andrena ~ Getting a Grip on Grace ~ A pastor in Philadephia. She writes "Peace is allowing others to be who they are, as God created them... What a beautiful concept." Read this lovely article written for this day when she asked her young son the question "What does peace mean to you?" She writes - among other things -"a world with war and without having that split second of fear whenever we hear a plane flying too low, my son still looks at me out the corner of his eye to see if I react to planes in the sky.

We are from New York."

In June, 2007 Andrena starts off with a Peace Blast and ends with A MidSummers' Day Peace in which she led her congregation in a demonstration for inner city peace. See the moving video on her site.

Anita Havel ~ Snapshots of Life ~ Alabama ~ She writes "Dona Nobis Pacem - Give Us Peace. It's an interesting concept, isn't it? That people have the power to promote peace. That individuals, coming together as a unified voice, can bring about peace on earth. Is it possible? I like to think so." and includes this famous quote "I like to believe that people in the long run are going to do more to promote peace than our governments. Indeed, I think that people want peace so much that one of these days governments had better get out of the way and let them have it.
Dwight D. Eisenhower - 34th president of US 1953-1961 (1890 - 1969) ~ Anita

AnitoKid Chronikos ~ Philippines ~ "And I kid you not!"
