Recording your attempts at "Being Peace"
As you no doubt realize by now, I'm a HUGE fan of the Free Hugs Campaign. See my other blog entry on the Free Hugs outing!
i've been reading this blog since it started and it's been so inspirational that i keeping wanting to join and do something myself. i've just pledged to join the wednesday lunch fast (on a monthly scale though), and i wanted to let you know how being peace, thinking peace, and talking peace can be more contagious and far-reaching than one would have thought or intended...
This comment is in response to Caity from "Week 3: Violent Culture and Socialization" post.Your post touched me deeply. I think you were listening to your heart when you decided to write that letter to your mother. I believe your words will touch her heart ...there's a quiet understanding with the unspoken word..a silent understanding between mother and daughter. I lost my mother when I was 16 and sometimes at night I journal and write her a letter...she'll never receive my letters, but your mother will receive yours..this is why your post touched me so deeply.Sarah
wow, week 6 into the Peace Blog and it's going great..I enjoy reading everyones posts..thank you for sharing such great thoughts!
If anyone's interest was piqued by our discussion last week of systematic sexual violence against women, check out this disturbing article published by the New York Times a few days ago. It's called, "Rape Epidemic Raises Trauma of Congo War," and here's the link: http://www.nytimes.com/2007/10/07/world/africa/07congo.html?pagewanted=2&_r=2&hp. Read it, seriously. And then get mad and figure out a way to stop the violence!!!
I'm following these great posts from everyone. A phrase that really got my attention was from "sailor" with the line "I got mildly addicted to raoks."What a great addiction!!!"raok's" = random acts of kindness
Great posting! This "Peace Blog" is wonderful and when I come in to read ...each time I'm inspired!Thank you.
