Hi Twinklestars! Hope your weekend is going splendidly!
I am excited and a little nervous, because today you see, I'd like to invite you to my very own party! Well, it's not solely mine, really. It's yours too!
September 21st is the International Day of Peace -the UN dreamed up PEACE day as a way for people to express their versions of peace on a synchronized date, all across the globe (Yay! I better put out lots of hors d oeuvres!) Peacebuilding isn't "peacemaking" or "peacekeeping". Peace Day marks personal and planetary progress toward peace. It is celebrated by millions of people in all parts of the world, through song, through dance, through large scale events.
But anyone, anywhere can celebrate Peace Day! It can be as simple as lighting a candle at noon, sitting in silent meditation, or through personal acts of kindness. Acts of Kindness! See? You all are already peacebuilders!! I think, with all of the talent and creativity there is in the bloggyverse, we could make this a lovely day!
Think of the impact- millions of people in all parts of the world, coming together for one day of peace, its immense!
So let's do it! Won't you join me? On September 21st, let's post our little doves, and whatever else means peace to us-a peace symbol out of rose petals or the rose itself, a poem, a song, a person, a quote, a story, or a word, a picture, a moment in time, whatever it is that you see in your mind's eye when you think of peace! It doesn't have to be lavish--or, you can go extravaganza style! Whatever you can spare, so that, for just one day, there are so many people thinking peaceful thoughts a cloud bursts and starts showering us with shimmery love drops!
Feel free to take the button, and please please leave a comment, or drop me an email at email@example.com, and I will add you to the Twinklestars 4 Peace list-so we can visit each other on the 21st ok? And please, tell your friends and spread the word! The more chaos, the more peace!!!
YAY! Thank you twinklestars, you are loved!
XOXOXOX Rhonda Roo
