As long as we all buy into the paradigm that tells us war, violence, strife and terror are the only possible reality, we're going to get more of the same. Join us in envisioning a new reality, a paradigm of peace. Let it start inside individuals, spread to families, and radiate to our communities, our country, our world. Will you put one of our magnets on your car to let others start to think about peace?
A quarter of all proceeds go to organizations that are working toward a more peaceable future. This quarter's donations will go to CARE's efforts in Darfur.
Hey, I'm off to my new blog, JC Shakespeare. Please tag along and visit. The PeaceMeme started to feel a bit narrow, and the new blog will address other areas of my life that I'd like to share. I hope you'll check it out. Peace, JC!
No need for any moralizing lecture or anything, but I'm deeply saddened that our culture's lust for cheap material possessions cost Jdimytai Damour his life. He's the worker trampled in the Valley Stream Wal-Mart when shoppers couldn't wait for the doors to open to get to the deals. I've never been a fan of Wal-Mart, but after this, it really chafes me to see their holiday commercials featuring tidy aisles stuffed with toys and smiling greeters hospitably waiting to help customers. That's a far cry from what happened on Friday morning.
Apparently Toys-R-Us isn't safe anymore either. Between these looks at the ugly underbelly of consumerism and the constant bad news about the economy, maybe we can wake up from our trances and begin to question the values that we're embracing in our culture. Advent -- a time to wake up and welcome the light.
Longer Peaces Articles for Leisurely Reading: This is where I put longer posts so that they won't clog up the Peace Meme page. I hope you'll take some time to leisurely peruse these articles, as they represent the philosophical underpinnings of what I'm trying to do with this site.
