BlogBlast For Peace: A Revolution of Words ~ June 4, 2008

THIS IS A STICKY POST UNTIL THE EVENT IS OVER IN JUNE. SCROLL DOWN TO READ WHAT ELSE IN HAPPENING!!!



Welcome to BlogBlast For Peace - The Fourth Launch! Dona Nobis Pacem is Latin for "Grant Us Peace". The Peace Globe project began in the fall of 2006 with a simple post from this blog. The post ignited a flame in the blogosphere. The flame became a passion. The passion became a movement. It amazingly travelled from blog to blog across the globe until it reached 35 countries and 46 states. BlogBlast for Peace is a semi-annual blog event. It happened on my blog. It happened on your blog. It happened all over the world. It is positively inspiring to watch. The simplicity of three Latin words on a globe and bloggers writing amazing articles on what peace means to them.
Simple. And powerful.

On June 4, 2008 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?


How To Get Your Peace Globe
Here's how to do it in 4 easy steps!



  1. Choose one of the four Peace Globe designs shown below. Right CLICK and SAVE in JPG format.


  2. Sign the globe using Paint, Photoshop or a similar graphics tool. Decorate the globe anyway you wish. You can even include the name of your blog. Click here for hundreds of inspiring examples from previous BlogBlasts.


  3. Return the peace globe to me via email ~ mimiwrites2005 at yahoo.com and sign the Mr. Linky below. Let me know your blog's name and url by leaving a comment here. Your submission will be numbered and dated in the official gallery . Your globe and post will be listed on the Official BlogBlast For Peace website and The Peace Globe Posts page.


  4. On June 4, 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 that day or simply fly your globe. Click here for examples of peace globe posts from previous BlogBlasts.


If you already have a globe from a previous BlogBlast you may use that one or make a new one. Send in as many as you wish. Be creative!











If I believe that words are powerful -

then this matters.



FOUR ways to help spread the word:


  • Meme it (said the Queen of Memes) from your own blog. Copy this post and throw out a challenge to those on your blogroll. The last time I did that, amazing things happened. There's something about this project that has a life of its own.


  • Fly a banner of a countdown clock on your site. Grab the codes or write me for them.


  • Take this button to your site to help promote the next BlogBlast For Peace.

June 4, 2008

A little inspiration from my written recollections on the first Dona Nobis Pacem in the Blogosphere. I was moved to record the "coincidences" that took place on eve of the first launch. Written November 8, 2006 in a post titled Endings Make Perfect Beginnings. I was humbled to recall....

"My Papa's prayers became my vision. My vision became your vision. Our vision will see change. How do I know this?

Because up until the eve of this wonderful day my words were only half alive. Unknowingly, I spun them from an incomplete dream and hung them on a half circle of peace. It was not until my dreams were visited by a long-ago prayer.....that the dream became a promise.This is Frank Sirianni's first grandchild
Present and accounted for on the day her Papa spoke for peace.
He sent me this photograph from Canada at almost the exact moment I discovered a little blue marble in the bottom of a wooden bowl - delivered by my own Papa many years ago
A prayer full of peace
and promise."


Note: Frank's little Lily was born in the early spring of 2007 (the globe should say 07, not 06). I like to think she is the youngest peace blogger ever.

What will this year bring?
