November 4, 2013
Bloggers from all across the globe
will blog for peace.
We will speak with one voice.
One subject
One day


In the fall of 2006, BlogBlast For Peace aka the Peace Globe movement, was born. A small group of bloggers answered a challenge I tossed across the blogosphere, and it began to rumble and form across the Internet. Today it has spread into 176 countries with thousands of voices blogging peace and calling for change.   It reaches across political lines and religious creeds, abides in corners of unrest and places of hope, gives voice to individual beliefs, promotes tolerance for diversity in an ever-changing world, and offers a platform to anyone willing to speak.


What is it? I wanted to know what would happen if all bloggers everywhere signed their name across an Earth globe and all posted the same post on the same day.  It was that simple. I would ask them to step out from huts and corners and cul-de-sacs for one day and write on the subject of peace.
 In their own language, from their own perspective, freely, in their own words.  I would give them a common place to speak. We would have one twenty-four hour span of time to express our desire for a peaceful planet.  A pledge. A signature. A symbolic promise.  It was an invitation for all nationalities, creeds, tribes and religions to converge upon one page. 

It was the Internet's first ever online movement of its kind. We have been amazed to see the power and passion of the peace globes shown each year displayed on pages across the world. It has become a virtual inscription of hope. Scribbles and angst became poetry and art. Prose spilled into novellas of respect and controversy. Photographers set about finding perfect specimens to beautify with the lens. Blogs were dusted and the very best china set out. Comment boxes filled up with shalom and peace vibes, praise, encouragement - community. I am moved by it every time. From one post to thousands of others in fifty-nine countries (so far) and every state in the United States, people take down the virtual neighborhood fence and see themselves in the posts and pictures of folks clear across the world.  Suddenly, nothing remained virtual to any of us.

Then one day someone called it a movement. Indeed, it has become just that.


I invite you to experience it.
It's time.
