Blog Blast for Peace and the painted umbrella

Charity umbrella done for developmental disabilities in Memory of Jayna Brearly.
Today is annual peace globe day, where bloggers unite towards making a more peaceful world!

Had he lived it would be my fathers 89Th birthday. Such a peaceful man and loving dad despite the fact he was not privy to one himself. He would be proud to know how peaceful my life is now, and how wonderful his granddaughter turned out!


My mother has long passed away.
She dreamed of a classroom
Where children were taught empathy.
She’d be sad to know there are a mixing pot of families,
many who rarely say a kind word to each other in the home
Let alone teach their children empathy
or kindness towards one and other


Despite sending our children off
Well equipped with hugs, kisses 
a great lunch and  loving heart
Some children come to school
Empty, full of anger, sorrow, and disillusionment
There are those who believe isolating "good Children"
from  unfortunate victims of  chaotic unhealthy homes
Will  protect their kids
from being victimized, damaged or influenced

 I believe that neglected children need our love
our support, our compassion, and understanding
They need us to build their self esteem
Teach them kindness, give them hope
for a peaceful future despite any turmoil now.
We need to be that good influence  in their life
 Connect and care
We need to step up and step in
Lead the the way by example
 Because we can ALL make a difference in a child's life.
We can ALL work towards a better tomorrow
and a more peaceful world!

After all, Peace starts at home,
peace starts with you!

I love the way your umbrellas turned out, very whimsical, pretty and full of love, just like the artist ;)

Beautiful, colorful blog. Your umbrella is so very sunny and bright.

If we all would practice peace in our homes, the world would be peaceful.

What a lovely, moving post! I so agree...the children who most need enfolding in love and caring are those that are segregated (perhaps because of non-acceptable behaviour) from those that can give it to them.

Love the umbrella! Really love it!

Thanks for sharing.

Peace to you and yours x

Yes, Giggles, peace should start at home. Peace should be cultivated in our hearts and minds right at home so that when we go out we will always radiate peace to all who are in contact with.

Thank you for visiting all my peace globes. I love the song IMAGINE, too! that is why i used it today.

Wonderful words in this post. If only all moms and dads could embrace their children fully with love and understanding, and send them out each day with that feeling.

Your umbrella is too fantastic!

Finding Pam said...

I was one of those damaged kids that not even my parents wanted, but all it took was one person to believe in me. That has made all the difference in the world to me.

Thank you for your encouraging thoughts about children. It sounds like you are a great advocate for those with out a voice.

Peace and love,
Pam
