Blog Blast for Peace Day
Today is a day set aside for bloggers around the world to dedicate their post to peace. What is peace? For me, peace is being left alone to sleep and eat all day and play when I feel like it. A lot of people feel the same way. "Don't bother me with your problems. I have enough of my own. The word peace is used so casually too by everyone. It can be said as a greeting, or at the end of a service with the words 'Peace be with you; or Go in peace.' But how many of us really make an effort to make a contribution to peace in this trying world we live in? We often feel to help spread peace we have to become deeply involved in organizations etc. But showing a little love and consideration to a friend, neighbor, person on the street, can make a significant difference in a person's life. That good deed will definitely be appreciated and you should feel good in return. We may never know how we touched those individuals but it certainly can't hurt.
So mom and I are going to burn a candle all day today in hopes that all these blogs dedicated to peace today will touch the hearts of many and bring us closer to peace in these difficult and trying times we live in!
Peace to all dear friends,
