The Power of Numbers

October 31, 2006 at 9:02 am 9 comments

“World Peace” the tag line of beauty queens and Christmas caroles. The battle cry of hippies. A mind set many of our world leaders find laughable. A state of being viewed as overly optimistic and unachievable by most of the world’s population.

But this is the beginning of the season of miracles and I believe in the power of the written word. There is another old cliche that says you get what you ask for. Cliches become cliches because they’re usually true. It’s time for us to ask our world leaders to put down their weapons and bombs, and with the power of our numbers and our minds, to do what we’ve been admonishing our two year olds to do for centuries: “Use Your Words!”

The goal is for all of the blogging community to use November 7th as an opportunity to band together with a single topic: Dona Nobis Pacem – Grant Us Peace. You’ll find a much more eloquent explanation at the originators site: http://mimiwrites.blogspot.com/2006/10/dona-nobis-pacem-in-blogosphere_12.html, or even at Quilldancers place. Take some time today to think about what peace means to you.

    I’ve been trying to figure out how to do this and get it on my blog – anyone can explain? I have a Mac, so that throws a wrench in the works. Thanks for any help!

    Great post, Kat.

The free-lance writer is the person who is paid per piece or per word or perhaps. (Robert Benchley)

Welcome to My Neighborhood!

Shortly after I learned to use a spoon, I learned to use a pencil. Crippled by shyness as a child, I found that the things I couldn't say out loud, I could say with a pen, and then a typewriter. The shyness was overcome with education and age...but the need to write has never left me.
