Welcome to Peace Week, Day 1

Posted: Monday, October 29, 2012 by Travis Cody in

Yes indeed.  We've reached single digits on our countdown to Blog Blast Day.  My Peace Muse is still being coy, so I don't know what I'll be posting this Sunday and I don't know what my Peace Globe design is yet.

Let's kick things off for Peace Week by celebrating my bloggiversary.  Six years ago yesterday I began Trav's Thoughts because I felt that I needed a place to lay down my poetry, my opinions, and my general philosophy.

The Blog Blast movement is also six years old this year.  It started off with one woman's expression of awareness and enlightenment.  She shared that with a small corner of the blogging world.  The contributions of bloggers from around the world expanded until online awareness became bricks and mortar action.

I know I approach my existence in the world differently, in part because of my participation in this movement.  Blog Blast Day and Trav's Thoughts will go together as long as Mimi's movement and my blog exist on the internet.

If humans would only realize how intricately tied to our experiences violence is, and became conscious of the connections, we might then better control it.  Charles Gramlich

Reason 5: Because today's reality need not be tomorrow's.

We speak on one subject with one voice on one day. Won't you join us? You have a voice; how will you use it? Check in at Mimi Writes or at the Peace Globe Gallery for all the details you need to make your Peace Globe and join your voice to the movement.

Join us. You know you want to.

I believe that words have power, so this matters.
