…Cherie’s Place – Thought for the Week

My contribution for Blog Blast for peace 2012:

Peace Globe 2012

When the heart is set right, then the personal life is cultivated. When the personal life is cultivated, then the home life is regulated. When the home life is regulated, the national life is orderly: And when the national life is orderly, the the world is at peace.

  3. Lovely quote. And BEAUTIFUL peace globe!

  4. “Dona nobis pacem”, indeed, please, whoever, if anyone or anything, has the power to grant us it.

    I fear the power is only with us, collectively, which is so often the problem, because there are so often some who prefer the alternative.

    But Dona nobis pacem.

      That is true and everyone of us who understands that and wants peace has the responsibility to try to promote peace. Which a lot of us do even if we don’t outwardly state it in such ways.

      Thank you :-)
