#9/100 Reasons I Blog4Peace/ Let's Hug

I love this song ! One day

I found this cool story that combines so many good things I just had to share .
Hugs , Recycling , Upcycling ,caring , Peace and love ! 
People sharing these wonderful things together . 
Not for Mass Profit and Gain .
Just to make the world better !  

And you know what’s especially cool (for school!)? 
The structures are made out of plastic bottles. The local communities gather the bottles and build the “bottle schools” on their own, taking ownership of the projects and teaching kids valuable skills along the way. Watch the video below and see the children get involved!
Hug It Forward’s first project—in Granados, Guatemala—used more than 5,000 plastic bottles to build two classrooms that almost 300 children use every day. Since then, the nonprofit has built nine more schools, with three in progress and even more being planned.

the next video about Hugs was

#10/100 Reasons I Blog4Peace/friendship

made with real flowers ,see the peace sign made with fern

Peace can come to us in many ways . I have been dealing with some extreme pain in my right arm lately and it flares up worse if I spend any time on the computer too . not good...
I got a sweet note from a friend that was checking on me and somehow knew I needed a smile and she sent this lovely poem .
She is one of my closest Buds . Flower -bud that is !

-- from Rebekah Smith of  She loves Peace too:>)
She is also the president of the wonderful guild we are both in World Wide Pressed Flower Guild . 

anyway here is the inspiring poem she sent

This is what you should do:
Love the earth and sun and animals,

despise riches, give alms to everyone that asks,
stand up for the stupid and crazy,
devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants,
argue not concerning God,

have patience and indulgence toward the people…
reexamine all you have been told in school or church or in any book,

dismiss what insults your very soul,
and your flesh shall become a great poem.

- Walt Whitman, excerpt from the preface to Leaves of Grass

May Peace and Blessing be upon You!

#11/100 Reasons I Blog4Peace/ Support Occupiers

I took this statement from the link below because I felt it deserved repenting!
To those Occupiers who will spend tonight, and the many nights ahead, in chilly tents or on the cold ground: we salute you. You are a vision of democracy in action.
You are the voice of millions of Americans who have lived in silent desperation for decades. You are the reason the 1% are worried. You are our last hope for getting our country back.

Power to the People ! 

May Peace and Blessings be upon You!
