Painting for Peace

04 Feb

I confess.  Every once in awhile I search for things I’ve posted about to see if my blog will show up. It’s a jolt of joy when it does. You know what is even better?  Having some other wonderful kindred site show up that you didn’t even know existed.

This happened the other day when I did a search on painting for peace.  My hero Lola is only half joking when she suggests that if the citizens of the whole world would hold each others children on their laps and paint their little smiling faces, war would be harder to wage. Her wish inspired the name of this blog, and now I often post about all kinds of painting for peace.

But the other day I found a site that is truly doing something about it. I Wage Peace.org has a project called “painting for peace” and you can read all about it here.  Basically it involves getting community members from diverse backgrounds to hand paint their own interstate peace billboard. The group itself is dedicated to peacemaking in the Middle East and has the inspiring slogan shown on the bumper sticker above.

There really are people out there painting for world peace. Really. What a jolt of joy!
