Welcome Home or Not

I was out of town all day and got home after dark. I hadn't left a light on so my porch was dark. But even in the dark I could see a yellow post it note stuck to my door. I figured it was from a neighbor asking if I could feed their cat or something. So I grabbed it and went inside to read it. It had my name on it but spelled wrong. Then it said "This is your killer. In two days you die."

Here I am an advocate for peace and I'm so disappointed to come home and find an implied act of violence. I figure it was just the neighborhood kids that were bored on a Sunday afternoon so they decided to create some drama. But now what? Do I let the police know? They'd probably just laugh at me. What would you do?

World Peace Day

It turns out today is World Peace Day. So I thought I'd add some peace videos from Youtube.

You can make your Peace Day video and enter it here:

Beware of False Peacemakers

I was about to start a blog on Peace, to in a tiny way counteract all the publicity that War is getting. So I remembered a bible verse about blessing the peacemakers. So I googled that up and this was the first quote I came across, that to me in a nutshell shows how out of context the bible can be taken.
"Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called Sons of God...
God Bless America and all of our soldiers fighting for our freedom and protection"

That was on a Christian site. In what crazy demented universe have we been taught that a person who kills for a living is a peacemaker? I guess in a sense that if you kill all your enemies you get peace by default. Sick.

First Post

Imagine tossing a pebble into a pond and watching the rings of concentric circles go out and touch other circles and spread across the pond. A Peace Pebble is like that. Steering your thoughts and intentions towards peace one bit at a time.
