Dona Nobis Pacem

Through Kate at Picklebums, I was reminded that today is the day to "Blog Blast for Peace".

As you know, I am far better at the inane than the profound these days. Oh yes, there were days in the past when I could examine the old bellybutton fluff and find philosophy worthy of sharing and there are some days in the present that I wish I could find the shards of my old voice to plead the case of peace.

I, personally, am all for peace.

I think the strengths of our military should be used to help people of the world affected by the natural disasters we are experiencing all too often.

I think the warmongers should all be given a nice cup of tea and a chance to explain why they should dominate the minds and souls of others and then placed in a nice padded cell where they cannot cause harm.

I think there are far more worthy things to spend our resources on than technology that can kill more effectively.

But I am just one person, and have been called naive.

However, I also think that people saying good things may convert into people doing good things, and it is never a bad thing to ask for good.

So today, as Mimi has asked, Blog for Peace. It can only do good.

Peace to you too Jeanie
Very inspiring words pleading the case for peace.

I agree 'there are far more worthy things to spend our resources on than technology that can kill more effectively'.
