Dona Nobis Pacem ~ Grant Us Peace~ A Revolution of Words

Thank you Paula from Six4Paula for designing such a fantastic Peace Globe, you did a wonderful job

I'm excited to join the fourth annual Blogblast For Peace, which began as a simple post by Mimi from Mimi Writes in the fall of 2006. The message Mimi sent in her first post "Dona Nobis Pacem" Latin for "Grant Us Peace" has traveled from blog to blog reaching 35 countries and 46 states, an amazing accomplishment, that makes you feel warm all over. And today, I'll be jumping on this train carrying " A Revolution of Words" with other bloggers throughout the blogosphere. Together we'' ll have our Peace globes posted along with our favorite words about what peace means to each of us individually- Here is the link to Mimi's Official Site for Blogblast For Peaceif you would like more information on this movement or would like to join.

One of my favorite writers, Ralph Waldo Emerson, summed the idea of peace up nicely for me, when he wrote of a way for an individual to contribute to the harmony in the world, he said,

"To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children...to leave the world a better place...to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded."

To leave the earth a better place starts with one person, although when people "Get Together" like we have today, a loving harmony emerges that prepares us to accomplish anything....even peace.

The Youngbloods- Get Together

"I was once asked why I don't participate in anti-war demonstrations. I said that I will never do that, but as soon as you have a pro-peace rally, I'll be there."

Speedcat Hollydale said...

Even though the peace globe day is over ... we can continue the effort in our hearts and in our words and actions.

Great post Ann!

As to your question of the "8" ... I was trying to answer the question you possed in the Tuesday post. You wanted to know if any readers recognized which post a certain line came from(from your archives) ... that was my guess.

Does that make sense? I was too vague in my last comment here ~ sorry. I have a tendency to type on the fly!!

ps ... ODAT has one cool avatar!! Wow! Is that the Jackson 5?

... abc 123 abc - baby you and me girl

Akelamalu said...

Beautiful Globe. Peace to you and yours. :)

Travis Cody said...

Good song choice!

Peace to you and yours!

Princess said...

Yes, we need to "get together and love one another right now" if we want peace on this globe of ours.
Great globe, quote and song.

Mimi Lenox said...

I am making the peace globe rounds and reading all the posts. Thank you for participating. I have had significant trouble getting on your site, it makes my computer freeze up. One day I tried 3 times to leave a comment and could not. Anyway.....hope this goes through. Thank you for blogging for peace and supporting the event.

Peace to you and yours,

Motherhood- Courage

Motherhood is an art impossible to explain, one which requires a vast sea of love, devotion, compassion, and understanding, unmatched by any affection we will ever know again.- Ann Clemmons






Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.

Ann Clemmons

Favorite Phrase

I remember I used to half believe and wholly play with fairies when I was a child. What heaven can be more real than to retain the spirit-world of childhood, tempered and balanced by knowledge and common-sense...

Beatrix Potter’s Journal, 17 November 1896, from the National Trust collection.

The Storyteller, by Dawn Drover

Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light

She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free

For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well

Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination

Written for Ann

Catch your dreams


Most of the worlds' great things were born of adversity and hardship; because these roadblocks encourage us to dream, imagine and believe.- Ann Clemmons

Favorite quotes-

In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since.

Whenever you feel like criticizing any one,” he told me, “just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.”'

F. Scott Fitzgerald. (Lines from The Great Gatsby)
"A Southerner Talks Music"

Mark Twain

"A book must be the ax for the frozen sea inside us."

Franz Kafka

An author values a compliment even when it comes from a source of doubtful competency.

- Mark Twain in Eruption

"I like a good story well told. That is the reason I am sometimes forced to tell them myself"

Mark Twain
