Dona Nobis Pacem (Grant Us Peace)

Greater minds than mine have grappled with the concept of peace and what it means to us. Now, we are finding ourselves at war the same countries over and over.
Ours is a world of nuclear giants and ethical infants. We know more about war than we know about peace, more about killing than we know about living. We have grasped the mystery of the atom and rejected the Sermon on the Mount.
General Omar N. Bradley (1893-1981), American military leader.



Please visit with peacebloggers on FaceBook, Twitter, Mimi Writes and many of sites around the world. By 11/4, I will have a different peace globe on each of my blogs.
I am a peacenik from way back. I have been promoting peace for 30 years and blogging for peace for 5 years. I love to make the globes. It is great fun and Mimi (peace lady) keeps the globes on line for everyone to enjoy.

Why do I blog for peace? If I can cause one mind to doubt, to study further, to ask questions, then I have done something that would not have been done if I had not tried. Try, won't you?

Perhaps if people started by finding spiritual peace, the rest would follow. Tolerance would be a good start. Why can't we just accept other people the way that they are? Why do they always have to conform to our idea of how they should be? Intolerance, greed and abuse of power are the main causes of all these wars. And nobody seems to worry about the mental illnesses they give to soldiers and civils alike. There are no winners in wars. Only losers.
