Dona Nobis Pacem
The Peace Globe initiative is a blogger movement to promote world peace. Many bloggers are participating in the hopes that things will change.
Poverty. Hunger. Cold. Wars. Global Warming. Health. Wrongful imprisonment. Greed. Corruption. Ignorance.
It's a long list of troubles. The issues circle this ol' globe and not a single area, including my own, is immune.
I believe there can be a better world. A world where resources are shared and not hoarded by the few. A world where the land is respected, not raped. A world where the small and weak are regarded with wonder, not tramped on and forgotten.
There must be another way. The one we're using isn't working very well.
Seemingly one little voice crying out amidst the turmoil won't be heard, but maybe the hundreds, thousands, millions of us who know that the world can be a nicer place if we only decide it will be can raise our voices until the sound smashes the sound barrier.
Maybe then those with the authority will listen. Because that is the power of prayer, and I pray every day for a better and more just world. Please join me.
