On 4 November 2012, the 9th Blog Blast for Peace kicks off with bloggers from all around the world posting messages of peace and harmony under the phrase Dona Nobis Pacem.
The last two years I have added quotes to the end of all my posts for the 30 days leading to Blog Blast Day. Last year I counted down with 100 Reasons to Blog for Peace. Work and life prevented me from getting organized to do a new 100 reasons this year, but I always want to bring awareness about the event.
This year, that awareness comes from my 30 Days of Peace Quotes. I shall also repeat my final 30 Reasons to Blog for Peace from last year.
I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do. Edward Everett Hale
Reason 20: In the Lord of the Rings films, Lady Galadriel (played ethereally by Cate Blanchett) says "Even the smallest person can change the course of the future." I am just arrogant enough to believe that I can change the future by my actions, and so my actions include blogging for Peace.
