Blogblast for Peace - Dona Nobis Pacem

By Jennifer from Dust Bunny Hostage

Today is the Blog Blast for Peace (background information can be found HERE). I am thrilled that Alabama Bloggers will represent our state in a movement that has world wide participation. It is a good day to be an Alabamian.

Current Alabama Governor Bob Riley once said, "Alabamians are a faithful people who believe that creating a better world for our children and helping our neighbors are both sacred duties." I interpret this to mean that creating a better world starts at home. It starts with me. Just as peace starts with me. The way I treat my family, my neighbors, people in the community, a stranger on the street... these are all crucial elements to peace.

To find other participants for the Blog Blast for Peace, please visit it's founder Mimi Lennox.

Peace comes from the little things we do in every day life, it spreads through a community.

Lovely post =)
