Blogging for Peace - June 4, 2008

Yep, Waiting for the Muse is joining the Sacramento-based Blog Blast for Peace! Please join me!

Welcome to BlogBlast For Peace - The Fourth Launch! Dona Nobis Pacem is Latin for "Grant Us Peace". The Peace Globe project began in the fall of 2006 with a simple post from this blog. The post ignited a flame in the blogosphere. The flame became a passion. The passion became a movement. It amazingly traveled from blog to blog across the globe until it reached 35 countries and 46 states. BlogBlast for Peace is a semi-annual blog event. It happened on my blog. It happened on your blog. It happened all over the world. It is positively inspiring to watch. The simplicity of three Latin words on a globe and bloggers writing amazing articles on what peace means to them. Simple. And powerful. On June 4, 2008 bloggers from all across the globe will blog for peace. We will speak with one voice. One subject. One day.

Won't you join us?
