“Peace is a matter of the heart. When the heart and soul are at peace, the person is at peace and as someone has said, “What consumes your mind will control your life.” This planet is being consumed by hearts filled with bitterness, hate, prejudice and greed. Those who believe that forcing their will on others through war and terror will bring peace and make this planet a better place are sadly mistaken. Their hearts will never be truly satisfied. There will always be one more thing to conquer and still, satisfaction will not come. Again, it has been said, “The only One who can truly satisfy the human heart is the one who made it.”

At sunset on July 12, 2012, we, as a community of peace bloggers, launched the 9th BlogBlast For Peace aka Dona nobis pacem in the blogosphere. We made a trip to the shore (virtual and real) and synchronized sunsets across the globe. From Israel to the Atlantic, the Ohio River to the Ionian Sea, virtual splashes from Arkansas to the Connecticut River, from British Columbia, Newfoundland to the Florida coastline, Ireland and Washington, even Mississippi and Oregon met me in North Carolina on the Cape Fear River…. Peace globes 2012 was launched. We made quite a splash.
I could think of no better way to announce our November 4th campaign than a designated time for all to bring the same thoughts and vibes to the table…er…ocean. And that’s just what happened. It wasn’t just me making an announcement. It was all of us. See the Facebook Event page here. (Peaceful Message In A Bottle Tossing Event)
Quotations came in. I put them in a bottle* or wrote them on shells and rocks. I painted and scripted and cut scrolled paper into strips. Then I wrote my own letter to place in the bottle explaining the movement and its history. This is what sunset looked like when I walked out to greet my fellow peace bloggers on the shore of my Atlantic. The light was blue! Wherever peace bloggers were in the world – on their own beaches of change and hope – I knew they were tossing peaceful thoughts at the same time. These are a few of the sayings I took with me to the beach:
She wrote, “below us, above us” I’ve been doing artwork based on schematics.. this one is based on a RF Power oscillator schematic, musical notes from “Imagine” and the thoughts in my head today. This is the day of “throw-a-peace-message-into-the-ocean. So I have myself throwing a virtual peace sign into a virtual ocean.”
and more! I saw these folks there as well…Randal, Dawn, Fisher and Staff, Lori Cheryl, Julie, Ann, Nicholas, Michelle, Hope, Diane (on the Connecticut River), Michael, Jobi (who wrote, “The time for peace is now”) Ned (tossing from the Ohio River), EmmDee, Sonny Bee (who will toss a peace message into the Ionian Sea for us in August) CGrayWolf, Eileen, Alicia Ballard, Julie Carlisle, Doreen, Alison, DJ in Israel and others.
It was so moving to think of the peace bloggers physically (and virtually and metaphorically!) delivering peace to the ocean at the same time. Instead of one person announcing a movement launch while others jump in to follow – we actually began together. I like that. I like that a lot. It speaks to the continuity this movement has achieved and the dedication of all of you. We do believe that words are powerful…or we wouldn’t have given them back to the sea and to each other.
