Because If It's Not One Thing It's Another
I agree Dianne. We need to follow Mr. Lennon's advice and see what comes of it. Unfortunately, there are still too many people in power who see war as a money-maker.
We must never be silent. Each little voice for peace adds to the shout which is sometimes heard by even those who are deaf to to our cries.Lets keep on giving peace a chance!
Yes, it is a matter of simply giving it a chance. A chance!~*
Peace be with you.
Agreed. We must speak reasonably and responsibly, and with respect.Peace.
spartacus - I am hoping to see a renewed belief in diplomacy come January 20.rob - one of my favorite quotes - I paraphrase - 'all it takes for evil to thrive is one good person doing nothing'thaiandchani - one little step at a time, thank you for your visit.linda - and with you :)wow made me think of being at church when I was a kid. we ended the mass that way.I LOVE you in your wonderful shirt!!travis - perhaps those are the 3 R's we need to be teaching more of.
"Imagine" one of the best songs ever written.Thank you for the reminder.
What a wonderful video you found! I hadn't seen it yet, will go over to YT and 'favorite' it!
Peace to you and your family. I found the Blog Blast links a little late but still managed to make a picture. It's so important, if we all just try, like Lennon and you say... give peace a chance!!
kay - I like to 'Imagine' - thank you :)deborah - I have been viewing videos with Peace/Lennon/War/Humanity themes for days. There are many beautiful ones. Some were too long. This one just seemed perfect. I'm so glad you like it :)crystalchick - never too late to get in on Peace :)I'm trying ... Hugs Lady.
"If you say something worthy - your voice can never be silenced..." Beautiful and true. Beautiful post.
Amen, Amen and AMEN again!Just give it a chance -please!!!
Great minds ... come see:-Daryl
Peace and love to you, Dianne. Today and always :o)
Excellent post! Peace!
As the mom of five sons, I sure don't want my children to be drafted into some war on a God-forsaken shore. That being said... John Lennon??? Ok, he was a little strange. I'm not sure that he was more popular than Jesus, though. Even if he did sell more records than Him. :p
raven - I'm glad you like that quote, it's an original ;)jeni - if we say please often enough maybe ...daryl - on my way, wouldn't surprise me if we're on the same page :)ivanhoe - you too!! thank you.reb - thank you.I love your new pic. A really cool lighting effect. Makes you look very powerful - which of course you are :)mrs c - I'll never forget when my son had to fill out his selective service papers. I told him he wasn't going anywhere unless the enemies ship was at the NY Harbor and even then - I was going first to have some words with themthe Lennon-Jesus comment was taken out of context.
Beautiful, Dianne! You've done a great job with this.
Lovely Dianne, just lovely! Peace to you and yours m'dear. x
Happy Day of Peace to you Dianne.A wonderful sentiment and one I am hopeful we will be living in short order.

Nice peace globe, Dianne. I agree with tt, simple yet powerful. I like pithy.Thank you for your kind comments on my blog. I know that you and I would get along well in person, as long as we didn't talk politics!Ralph and I are actually crazy, we just hold back on our blogs. Or try to. ;-DPeace to you and yours.
Such a GREAT GREAT Song....! And this is a WONDERFUL idea....! I hadn't heard about it....I guess I am off "The Radar"...lol!I love what you did here, Dianne. Give Peace A Chance....INDEED!
Wonderful sentiment on your globe Dianne!I guess as I read everyone's posts today it still hits hard how many years I've heard Lennon's words and it still needs to be said.But hopeful I am.
bobbie - thanks, I was setting it up during election night so perhaps I was inspired :)akelamalu - thank you. and extra peace and love to your son.bond - one day at a time with a lot of deep breaths. tt - you always know what to say. peaceful squeezes!patti - I have no doubt we would :)oldold lady of the hills - it comes up every 6 mos. a reminder will be on the sidebar. you could never be off the radar! you are the radar!!carletta - before Barack was elected I would have had to stretch to look for signs of progress but he is President and there is a lot to look forward, even with these hard times!!
Such a complicated world. We have a friend shipping off again in about a week or two. He had three kids, two are three and under.He's an officer. He's an awesome guy. He loves his country. I respect him greatly for all of that. We want him to return to raise his new family -- soon and healthy.He knows the issues over there. He knows why for the war. He does and does [not] agree at different levels.Though, he doesn't really go into it. Government and all. What do our officers and soldiers really know?Happy Thursday!
Great words of encouragement. May peace find its way to you and to us all.P.S. I appreciated your comment at Raven's too.
Peace to you Dianne.Bear((( )))
May you be at peace as well.
Let us follow and lead by example... Now is the moment and we needn't let it slip into more division despite the efforts of those that would prefer it stay divided in order to achieve some illusion of power.Power, an odd word when it is used to simply divide and conquer...When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace. Jimi Hendrix
As long as there are gentle souls who dream of peace, there's a chance we will one day achieve it.
farmers wife - I think our soldiers probably know and feel more than we can ever imagine. It is shameful that he is being sent back - again. From what I have read these re-deployments aren't necessarily legal.I have the utmost respect for all our soldiers - I wish our leader cared enough about them to stop using them.jeff - thanks :)I wasn't sure what to say at first, I seem to muddle things up lately, I think I'm over tired. But then I had to. and I'm so glad you knew where I was coming from. bear - you too my friendthanks dr. john - and I hope you're feeling well today too :)poetryman - the wonderful dance of following and leading - I hope we all learn new steps :)mymaracas - yes! gentle souls!! we need them.
Great post for blogblast for peace. I also enjoyed reading your posts below. This has been an exciting election. I'm still floating on the clouds. I'm from NC so took special interest in your post about our senate race. I can't tell you what it meant to me to see the senate seat owned by Jesse Helms for so long which went to Elizabeth Dole after he retired, being won by Kay Hagan. It made me so HAPPY. My Carolina Blue skies are a little bluer this week. YES!Dona Nobis Pacem
Yes! The voice of peace and reason cannot be silenced.Thanks for the beautiful reminder of John on such an appropriate day for a BlogBlast for Peace.
We all need to be at peace. A deep pervasive state of peace. As peace begins with us, as we grow in that sense, anything good is possible. The more peaceful world will exist as this notion begins with us and spreads exponentially. Everyone, everywhere!
carver - so nice to meet you and congratulations on your blue NC skies, Libby free skies! carol - thank you!ralph - very true, thank you.
Wonderful post, Dianne! Peace to you and yours!
Great Peace Blog Blast!Sending *Peace*Love*Light* to ALL!!!
John was sincere and I'll always remember him that last year discussing in a magazine interview how demanding it was to be a parent and bake bread and so forth. Very natural, and quite a thoughtful person I know all of us would have enjoyed chatting with. That's how I remember him, dianne! lol!!!!:)
If only we would give it a chance. Lovely globe and peace be with you and your loved ones.
Nicely said! :)
immi - thank you :)patty - glad you like it :)michael - I remember him much the same way. jmb - it often seems intolerance is the easier path - we need to change that.casdock - thank you Lady :)
Inspiring! Moving - especially when I saw the children in the video! Peace, for their sake!
Great post, Peace to all
april - thank you, the children always break my heart. eric - Amen!! :)
Peace to you Di!!! :D
and may we all find peace and give it a chance.
Let's all give peace a try!! It'll definitely be worthwhile :)
Thank you for posting this video and making such a strong statement for peace today.Peace to you and yours,Mimi
roger - thanks sweetie ;)don't work too hard!!ruth - I hope so :)napaboaniya - it will be!! mimi - you are welcome!!
So beautiful my friend,I pray this is the dawn of a new age of peace...Its gotta start in little things... like the way we talk to each other...the way we see each other... This I'm hoping is something which having Obama as president will help with,Winged peace to you,Maithri
What a great peace post! I think we all should strive to do all we can so that someday this goal can be achieved.
maithri - I think Obama will have a lot to do with bringing civility back. he had his first press conference yesterday and the tone was so calm and his ease with the press was so genuine.tammy - thanks tammy, I agree :)
A simple yet strong statement for peace.
bintabg - thank you, in the post-election exhaustion I thought simple might be good :)
I really, really loved that video! Fabulous. And a simple and powerful peace globe. Happy Blogblast For Peace Weekend!
julia - thank you :) I thought the video was short enough to be interesting while still conveying a clear message.
Every day we are afforded the opportunity to start anew and give Peace a chance. Let us hope the world will unite and listen.
I am very sorry... I completey forgot about the day! I was so honed in on the historical moment that I forgot about posting on this worthy blog for peace day. Forgive me.
anndi - very true - well saidpoetryman - no apologies necessary, the historical moment is connected to peace and it's all full circle :)
I'm still working my way through the many Peace Posts ... and yours is a marvelous reminder for us all. I hope you'll reconsider your decision to allow your voice to be silent after you've rested, for you speak for many … and we each say ‘Amen’.Thich Nhat Hanh teaches that ‘Peace is in every step’ … a choice in every instant no matter what’s happening around or within us. As each of us blogs for peace in our own ways, we join our minds and hearts together to create this reality in our world.Hugs and blessings,
