Dona Nobis Pacem
Welcome to the annual BlogBlast For Peace aka Dona Nobis Pacem in the blogosphere.
What is it? A small group of bloggers answered a challenge Mimi Lennox tossed one angst-filled October day in 2006. She wanted to know what would happen if all bloggers everywhere signed their name across a globe and all posted the SAME POST on the SAME DAY. She created a graphic and made the first one.
Mimi asked us to write "Dona nobis pacem" which is Latin for "grant us peace" across the globe image and post it on our blogs in November. Fifty-two people responded enthusiastically and soon it began to spread like a beautiful lyric across the internet.
Peace globes now fly on blogs of over 20,000 citizens from 200+ countries and territories on six continents. They are housed in an online gallery here and shown daily throughout the year on thousands of blogs.
Every November 4th - which is Mimi's grandfather's birthday - we fly them in unity.
We launch a new BlogBlast For Peace.
We hear new stories.
We welcome newbie peace bloggers.
We learn about the world around us, how alike we all are, how human. It is a beautiful thing to behold.
