This Clock Never Seemed So Alive ~ June BlogBlast For Peace Is Here



Whenever I hear "You and Me" by Lifehouse I am immediately transported back to October, 2006. I'd just written a blog post called "Dona nobis pacem in the Blogosphere" and laid down a challenge to my readers. Readers? What readers? I had ten. Maybe.

And then out of the blue.....52 people responded and thought it was a great idea. I remember saying "I didn't know 52 people read my blog."

Nearly two years later, we are about to launch our 4th BlogBlast For Peace. We watched it move magically from blog to blog to blog until it reached 35 countries and 46 states. What started as a simple idea, turned into a passion. The passion turned into a movement.






From the original blog post on October 12, 2006 I wrote: "Inspiration struck today in the form of memories; stirred by the sight of a single engine plane accidentally crashing into a New York building and further cemented by yet another news story on North Korea's testing of nuclear weapons. Reality has been harsh today, to say the least.What can we do? It started me thinking.
Imagine a day like this.......You turn on your computer, crank up Blogger or Typepad or Wordpress and you realize that something is very strange. Someone or something is playing a huge cosmic joke. Wouldn't it be AWESOME if on one particular day......

All bloggers everywhere signed their blog name across a globe and all posted the SAME POST on the SAME DAY...

What IF...

every person who clicked through the blogosphere saw hundreds - even thousands - of posts that said the SAME THING?

What IF...........every post on November 7, 2006 was simply titled "Dona Nobis Pacem" with a picture of our big beautiful world in the body of the post with each blogger's name screaming a great big GRANT US PEACE?


The Peace Globe.


What if......
... we added the power of the written word - and our blog names -
to the face of our world?

A world that Rhys from A World of Bloggers has already envisioned as intertwined. A world that Lizza and Irene take the time to share with us through pictures and beautiful sentiments. A world that Frank saw as having grand artistic potential and merit by inviting people to swipe their blog souls in crayon on a wall.
A world, much of which I've never seen, that many of you create for me with words. A world that so many of us have already begun to realize is smaller than we ever imagined. When something catastrophic happens in your neighborhood, I, as your blogger friend and colleague, can draw your hurt a little closer to my own understanding. Politics, religion, rhetoric and rant make no difference to me in the cyber cul-de-sac.We are comrades in community, a mouse click away from visiting a friend, sharing a cup of coffee over a good read, debating, learning, growing. Can we effect change by sending a silly graphic around the globe with childlike scribblings and paint-by-number glee? Will it really matter?


I can only answer for myself.


And if I believe that words are powerful -
then this matters.


I am calling the June 4, 2008 "A Revolution of Words"
