Dona Nobis Pacem 2011

World peace is one my dreams. I always wish that someday, people will just set aside their differences and live in harmony forever. I know that it’s still possible.

Today, thousands of blogs, FB and twitter accounts from across the world will be showing off their peace globes to show support to the global peace movement dubbed “Blogblast for Peace”. Blogs will flag the title “Dona Nobis Pacem”, meaning “Grant Us Peace”. Check out founder Mimi Lenox’ site for the details. This is my 2011 contribution and support.

Peace be with all of you!

    Very nice globe. Peace will come one day, but it will not be through the efforts of man.

    So many of us share that belief… we will get there.

    I like to think that we are all more alike than different. I smile at strangers in the grocery store and say something to them. I am blessed when someone smiles back at me.

    I enjoyed reading your post and your globe.

    Peace be with you.

    This is very inspiring, I sometimes think that greediness is the reason for all of our suffering.

    Zero Dramas

    So appropriate to quote John Lennon on this occasion. May we all find peace in our hearts someday.

    Hello! I am peace blog-hopping again and I remember you from last year! I must have stopped by about the same time because I remember you talking about the Grand Prix on Yas Island. Peace to you – and have a great time! G.G.

    Hey, Good to see you again Nelson! I’m late to the peace-finding scene this year, but ‘better late than…’

    Good classic peaceglobe you are flying! 🙂

      Hi Annelisa! Nice to see you back here! To be honest, I haven’t done my annual peace globe hunting, as I’ve been very busy these last few days. I’ll be waiting for your masterpiece again on Peace Bloggers Unite. Peace to you!


      • November 20, 2011 at 11:35 pm

        I didn’t think I’d seen you around much Nelson, but half the time I don’t know if it’s fb not showing all the posts!

        Yes, I’m working on the next stage of Peace Bloggers Unite peace-post gathering at this moment (I had such a horrible evening last night…Collected about 100 post links and my pc froze. When it unfroze, it brought up an old copy of all the links, so there was only a third of them! Unfortunately, I saved it before I realised what I’d done. Reckon if I’d closed it and re-opened it, I would’ve been ok :-S )

        Hope you are well xx
