I've been crying lately,

Join the Peace Train:

It is the start of the New Year. Bush is still in Office, we are still at War.

I can no longer sit idly by without letting the World know that I am opposed to War and can only think of one way to spread this message.
Won't you join me by placing the above in the Sidebar (or somewhere on your Site) to let the world know that we are United against the War and looking for Peace in this the New Year?

Hi Carol,

what a great way to start the New Year. I'd love to join you in your Peace Train, I have one, probably incredibly stupid question (sorry...) though..
Does the picture represent anything in particular (or anyone)?
Blessings to you for a wonderful, and peaceful New Year,


Carol said...

Hi Ellen not a stupid question at all. The picture is of Cat Stevens and his Peace Train you can watch a video here:

RennyBA said...

Happy New Year or: as we say it in Norway: Godt Nytt År!

Great way of starting it and you know my saying:

Make Blogs not Wars! More details in my New Year post.

Ellen said...

Hi Carol,

ahh, thanks for the clarification (and the video!), count me in okay!

Hi Carol,

I don't know if you've seen this version of the song. If not, it may be worth your while.

As I said on BlueRibbonBloggers earlier, you can count me in.


Carol said...

Thanks Jos,
I am gonna use this one instead. I don't expect anyone to use the video in their Sidebar though..unless they want to add it to their Blog as I have....

Ellen said...

Hi Carol,

the new logo is up, with a link to this post.
I'll try to blog about it today too, I posted the Dalai Lama's beautiful vision already before, but I'm working on a follow-up on it..

Anonymous said...

Hi Carol,

I am sorry, I wasn't suggesting you should use the other version, I just thought it would be nice for you to see/hear it, if you hadn't seen it already :))

I think changing the picture to the logo is a great improvement - it will not only fit better in most blog's themes, as you said, I am sure it will also allow more people to relate to it. Good move!


Carol said...

Thanks Jos,
Nope, I liked the one you showed me better than the one I had originally picked. Glad you like the new logo, it does seem to be more appropriate.
You're the bomb - it looks great and I have added you to the list.
Thanks so much for joining!

Lisa McGlaun said...


How do I join? Just add the widget?


Carol said...

Hi Lisa,
I think you can copy and paste the links it you choose or download the Logo and then upload and place in your sidebar.
Welocme Aboard!

Evan said...

It's hard to believe we are 8 years into the new century, and we still cannot figure out how to have peace in the world.


Carol said...

Digital Nomad,
You'd think we could get it right by now wouldn't you

Dawn said...

I'm aboard!

Carol said...

Welcome Aboard the Peace Train Dawn - you Rock!

Lynda Lehmann said...

Count me in! I'm all for peace, justice, compassion, fair distribution of resources, and corporate accountability. And for saving our earth for ourselves and our offspring.

I would like to see smiling faces on every continent, instead of faces marred by weariness and tears!

Debbie Dolphin said...

Hi Carol,

Deja Vu? - My comment has been posted in two places.

No doubt, all W.A.R. is caused by Weird Abnormal Religion, Oil, and Politics.

You have my support!

Can we also add our support for CODEPINK: Women For Peace?
Hopefully, an alliance of Blogging Peace Sites will help end this new Vietnam war?

Another Vietnam Era classic War by Edwin Starr seems to be appropriate. Just be careful of the Blogging Booby Traps in the comment crusade at this link!

Thanks to OpenID issues, my true virtual signature link is:

Hi Carol,

It's Fabulous, a Wonderful Project! Nice video! I agree... and I believe in the power of prayer. Spirituality has positive effect of overall personality of an individual to make the World a better place. We can all over the world to Prayer for Peace. I also believe that there is more power in numbers. If the World lets GOD know their desire for peace, HE will grant it. But HE needs to hear from us and HE needs to know that more of us want peace than war. HE gave us the gift of 'free choice'. To choose GOOD or bad. Jesus Christ is Lord!

I've posted your Peace Train at my Renato d'Oxaguiã Blog. Is it okay on? Please, check it at url http://renatodoxaguia.blogspot.com/2008/01/peace-train.html

Sorry for this late answer. I had fear of not being understood, my english is not very good. It’s only from American Music. I don’t speak and I don’t write in English, but I gave the best one of me and worked hard for this, because your movement for Peace is wounderful. I'm aboard!

Peace and GOD bless!
Your Brazilian Friend,
Renato de Trindade
