On peace

I think now more than ever, we need peace in our world. We do not need to fight each other, there are monster storms to fight and poverty and hunger that we can fight. We need each other now more than ever.

And now…

We’re back to our regularly scheduled program here at this humble little blog…or what passes for a program. So, expect a regular post on Tuesday, just like always.

However, this does give me the opportunity to ask…is there something you’d like to see more of? Or less of? Something you’re sick of? A topic that, if you see one more time, you’ll stick your head into a toilet and flush? Something you miss or would like to see? Maybe less questions in posts?

Let me know! I’d love to hear it and make you a little happier.

A fantastic idea

I don’t know if you’ve heard me ramble about Sourcerer or Just Gene’O. They’re these two blogs I absolutely adore. I find their posts inspirational and the content amazing. But, if I was to sit and think about it, the most powerful part of those blogs is Gene’O and how incredibly kind and compassionate he is. He just blows my mind.

So, turns out, he’s come up with a great idea, on Compassion. After the rally in Paris and the way the world unified against terrorism, I think compassion is more important than ever.

So I’m definitely up for this idea. On Friday, February 20th, all I have to do is blog around the idea of compassion. Not too tough. He’s hoping we get 1000 people to do it. What a beautiful idea.

Personally, I have found the internet to be an incredible source of amazing, compassionate people. They inspire me to give back. Gene’O is one of them. I’d love it, if there was more compassion in our world. What a beautiful thought.

On violence

This past Wednesday a gunman shot Nathan Cirillo, the honour guard (unarmed) from behind at the National War Memorial in Ottawa before heading on to Parliament Hill.

Nathan Cirillo was, among other things, a father, a dog lover and a husband.

When I think of what his family must be going through, I hope, that one day, our world will not know violence like this. It hurts so much to think of that horrible, senseless act and it helps me to read some of my favourite quotes on peace from some amazing people.
