This is the new blog...CONFESSION ZERO


The Peace Tree has come to a close.

Dear readers and authors, present and past, it is time to close The Peace Tree's doors for good. It has been a wonderful experience for these past years, but all good things must come to an end so that others may rise in their place.
It has been a pleasure.

An email written by a third-year Harvard Law student has incited outcry at law schools across the country. The email, reported by Above the Law, came after its unidentified writer made some controversial remarks at a dinner.
I'd say that on average a white Harvard Law Student is predisposed or as likely to be a racist as much as the next bigot that attends college anywhere in the nation.

Announcing BlogBlast For Peace 2010!

Welcome to the 7th launch of BlogBlast For Peace aka Dona Nobis Pacem in the blogosphere. It's inception began in 2006 with one single post and a cry for peace in our world.

A small group of bloggers answered that challenge and it began to spread across the internet in ways that humble me still. It reaches across political lines and religious creeds, abides in corners of unrest and places of hope, gives voice to individual beliefs and promotes tolerance for diversity. It celebrates the genius in each one of us, found in sparkling conversations of passionate pleas for change in the earth. It is that hope for change that motivates us.

It was the Internet's first ever online movement of its kind to invite bloggers to post the same message on the same day. From blog to blog it has moved and continues to grow. We have been amazed to see the power and passion shown each year displayed on pages across the world. We visit each other with our prayers and scribbles, prose and poetry, art and angst, heart and hilarity - and we are moved by it. From one post to thousands of others in fifty countries and almost every state in the United States, something rare and wonderful happens on BlogBlast For Peace day.
I am privileged to witness it.
I invite you to experience it.
It's time.
Join us!
