PEACE

Yes, even Winged Coyotes want Peace.  Today is Peace Globe Day, the brain child of Mimi Lennox a wonderful blogger and damn good writer.  This is my third year to participate in this endeavor for bloggers all around the world to just blog about Peace.

Personally I believe the path to Peace is having more women involved in government and politics.  There's a marvelous book out there called Women, Power, and the Biology of Peace by Judith Hand which explains this concept far better than I can.  It deals with how hormones are linked to aggression and the gender difference.  

Here's to a world where people can give up their fears of each other and live in Peace!

I think if those that govern are a truer reflection of the people they are meant to represent, we might achieve a better world indeed.

Oh, I thank you for the compliment and let me say that your peace globe is incredibly creative. It makes me want to take flight into some peaceful magical place.

Thank you for all you have done to promote (I see you doing that!) in the Bee Hive work on FB and other places as well. It is an important day because people have important things to say about this and need to be heard. I am proud that the movement gives them a chance to be heard. And to be creative while doing so.

We don't need to learn to unmake war, we need to learn to remake peace.

I would love to read that book!
