Marian Anderson on Peace

Old world map 1689

 
Marian Anderson (1897-1993) was one of the most celebration African-American singers of the twentieth Century and worked for many years as a delegate to the United Nations Human Rights Committee. 
Marion Anderson 1920
I love this quote by her:  
 
 No matter how big a nation is, it is no stronger that its weakest people, and as long as you keep a person down, some part of you has to be down there to hold him down, so it means you cannot soar as you might otherwise. 
 
Take a look at the old world map. What has really changed since its publication in 1689? We war, we struggle, we make peace, we war and struggle again. Is this really the inevitable cycle of life or is there a way to reverse the struggle permanently? I hope the latter is true.

Flying Peace Globes Today from Malaysia

Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 disappeared into the night sky from Kuala Lumpur en route to Beijing, China on March 8, 2014. As of this post the airliner has not been found. Our prayers and hopes are with the families of all aboard. These are a few of the beautiful peace globes previously submitted by citizens of Malaysia, who have long participated in this movement from the very beginning. Our thoughts are with them.

The Priority Boxes Art Project ~ Peace Boxes

We have admired Franck de las Mercedes' work for years. One of our peace bloggers, Cathy Keisha in this post, alerted us this week that Franck and his wife lost everything - including his art - in a fire. His Facebook page is here. Please consider helping Franck get back on his feet. Can you imagine losing everything, especially your artwork, in a fire? Franck has spent the last several years sending out FREE "peace boxes" all over the world. Just because people write to him and ask for one. The world needs more people like Franck. You can see his amazing art in the story link below.  Thank you.

"We all know that peace is very important and something that we really need.  So let’s start by putting one paw in front of the other and put this puzzle together, piece by piece. I don’t mind starting with my piece, so I will do something nice for a member of my own species to promote the peace, then I’ll do something peace promoting for another species, then just one more.  Get the picture?  Well, not yet, but the puzzle isn’t finished, not until you do your piece for peace."

Special Launch Event Thursday, July 12, 2012

We launched the 2012 BlogBlast4Peace season with a trip to the shore (real and virtual). I am already on the Atlantic. If you were here with us July 12 at sunset, even in spirit, then you were a part of the 2012 launch for BlogBlast4Peace. I can 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. Then it won't be just me making an announcement. It will be all of us. I like it!
Facebook Event page is here. It was a great success. Thank you. Let the peace begin.
