Give Peace A Chance



Like Quilly I am particularly blessed. The condition of the world makes me cry. I have been struggling for something to do about it without adding more confrontation into the mix. So, I simply ask that anyone who sees this join Mimi Lennox and Quilly and myself on November 7th, 2006 to say Grant Us Peace.

And as an added effort, I will spend the 24 hours from midnight to midnight on that day practicing peace. I will not call other drivers assholes. I will even refrain from pointing out the really stupid mistakes that my new co-worker makes every two seconds even though she says she the best thing since white bread. And if I happen to go into Wal-Mart, I will not make disgusted faces at the excruciatingly slow and lazy people that work there. I know, just call me Mahatma.

So come play with us on Tuesday, November 7th, 2006. Sounds like fun, doesn’t? Do it anyway, damit! (I didn’t say I’d be peaceful today.)

  1. Hey, nobody is leaving comments at my place, so I didn't think anybody was listening!

    You know we have 3 simple rules at Sidewalk that would lead to daily peace world-wide, if we could just get folks to follow them:
    G -- Give your attention to the speaker.
    O -- Only righteous words (and actions)
    D -- Don't be a space invader

  3. Quilly: Every night I castigate myself for my inability to spread my own personal peace and to maintain it within myself. Good acronym. I will use it, especially when I am driving. (And I think people have lives away from their computers on the weekend. Can you imagine?)

    Mimi: Feel free to add me to the gallery. And I hope many more people will join us.

  4. Nessa, Thank you for coming back to cheer me up. It seems folks have been posting there all along. Blogger just chose not to inform me.

    Thanks for your explanation of your relationship to both Ghandi and Groucho. I now have a better insight into your personality. I appreciate that candid revelation.

  7. Nessa -- of course there is! You just need to search a little harder for it.

  11. Serra: Since I am making a greater effort to get along with others (I din’t go to kindergarten, so I didn’t learn this lesson until later in life), you may have whirled peas, green bean cassarole, sweet potato pie, ice cream…anything your little heart desires.

    Quilly: Do I have to work so hard? Can’t you just tell me what a goddess I am? And I second Serra’s soap as a solution to the world’s ills.

    Tina: Yay!

    Kat: I openned it in Paint and did the word insert and typed my name. A laptop mouse is not the best thing for cursive writing.

    Jackie: Cool. I hope someone reminds me.

  13. BB: Kick them. Oh. no. wait, that's not very peaceful advice. Try this: Close your eyes, enter your Zen happy place and hope they go away. Yeah, that's better.
