Mimi, the QUEEN of meme’s, the creator of The Peace Globes, the author of BlogBlast for Peace has come up with another brilliant idea. She is treating her Peace Globes as a meme to spread this wonderful event. IHere’s what Mimi says:
Peace Globes did not begin as a meme. But it began to behave like a meme. Blog to blog to blog. Like a fog. We didn’t use the word “tag” ….but that’s what we did when we invited others in our blogrolls to participate. The fact that you did so without the obligatory tag is proof that the concept is powerful.It’s a fact that the fastest and most effective way to spiral an idea out of control in the blogosphere is via a meme. I should know! The 700+ bloggers who participated in past launches (and that truly is the tip of The-Iceberg-I-Never-Found) knows what it means to them. It’s about unity. We have that in spades. It’s about activism, awareness, crossing political lines, making a statement and sharing ideas. We’ve done that. We have the vision as a core group of bloggers for peace; but we do not – yet – have the power in numbers behind the message.

BlogBlast For Peace Meme ~ Join The Revolution

Here are the rules and the story. Copy this into a post, ADD YOUR NAME to the bottom of the tag list and tag as many people as you’d like. 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 just one day, 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?

  5. “Words have power … If you get the right ones, in the right order, you can nudge the world a little.”

    Tom Stoppard

    May we all say together: PEACE

  6. Love this Quote from John Lennon … it’s so true!!! Thanks for stopping by my 1st Blog Blast at Sacred Ruminations. I’ve posted a 2nd (different) one at Small Reflections too.
    Hugs and blessings,

  7. Peace to you, too :)

  8. Maybe I shouldn’t comment on this one. I mean, I’m all for peace. But I’m not to sure what posting a picture of a globe will actually do in terms of real results?
    Last year when I saw these popping up all over I tried asking some of the bloggers who posted them what was achieved. I never did get an answer. (And I highly doubt murderers or terrorists will be moved by these posts.)
    My way of promoting peace: honoring the brave men and woman who serve our great nation.

    …Just my opinion :)

    Peace

  9. May peace with you and your family, Vixen.

    I do think that making a public statement for peace… even on blogs, is doing something important. I’m so glad we come together and do this every year.

  22. Peace to you and yours!

  23. John Lennon said lots of things right with respect to peace. Marvelous post.
