Dona Noblis Pacem


Today we join with voices from all over in the 2011 BlogBlast for Peace.


Peace:

     a.: freedom from civil disturbance
     b.: a state of security or order within a community provided for by law or custom (a breach of the peace)
2.: freedom from disquieting or oppressive thoughts or emotions
3.: harmony in personal relations
4.: a.: a state or period of mutual concord between governments
     b: a pact or agreement to end hostilities between those who have been at war or in at state of enmity
5.:  - used interjectionally to ask for silence or calm or as a greeting or farewell
      - at peace
        : in a state of concord or tranquility
- Merriam-Webster Dictionary

Peace. We all want it. Some talk about it. Some pray for it. Some march or protest for it. In the end, though, will we ever have peace, if we don't understand what it is that we want? Will we ever have peace if we don't ourselves each think it, believe in it, feel it, act it?

What is your idea of peace?

  9. Interesting. I've seen a lot of folks' ideas of what they believe peace is to them, but seeing the definitions like that kinda focuses your thoughts on what it is considered to be.

    Peace to you and yours

    [your peace post will soon be linked into the patchwork peace quilt on my blog 'Peace Bloggers Unite' ]
