Welcome to Peace Week, Day 1

Posted: Monday, October 27, 2014 by Travis Cody in


You didn't think I'd let Blog Blast go by, did you?

Of course you didn't.  And so I won't.

I am a Peace blogger, even if I'm not actually an active blogger at the moment.  I still believe that words have power, and so this movement matters.

Last year, Blog Blast founder Mimi Lennox of Mimi Writes asked Peace bloggers what they wanted the world to look like.  I put my answer on my Peace Globe.  I did and do want the world to celebrate diversity in all its forms, and for everyone to have the opportunity to pursue his or her purpose with intent.

I think that's a good way to live, and I've always tried to follow that path.

This year, Mimi asks us to explore how we translate the words we convey about peace into our day to day bricks and mortar actions.  After all, what you put down in words should translate into behaviors, don't you think?  As Mimi says, these are words in the hands of love.

These days I'm finding so much peace in my family, friends, and colleagues.  I always enjoyed my interactions with my blogging community.  I've missed that since Trav's Thoughts went dark.  But what I've gained is more time to look into the eyes of others, and to have them look into mine.  There is a reason they say that the eyes are the windows to the soul.  A person's eyes reveal personal truth.

So welcome to Peace Week 2014.  Leading up to Blog Blast day on 4 Nov, I want to hit the Wayback Machine to share some stories I've posted in the past about my family.  That's where my personal Peace begins.  That's where it grows.  And that's the safe place from which my Peace ripples flow into the world.

Dona Nobis Pacem


  1. Glad you are finding peace in family. not as much in the outside world it seems.

    We've missed you!

    No peace day or peace week would be the same without you. You are one of the rocks of this movement and we are so glad to see you.

    Yay! You made me smile!

    P.S. Did you hear we have Antarctica now? A scientist/physician from Vostok Station has marked his calendar to join us Nov 4. We are now in all seven continents.
    Jamie said that we need to send him a sweater. Maybe Gram will knit him one....
