Day of Peace Blog Hop

Pin It
Welcome to the Day of Peace Blog Hop with Connie Can Crop and friends

Today we invite you to come check out this great group of crafters who will be showcasing cards, layouts, or projects all about today, the International Day of Peace.

The United Nations' (UN) International Day of Peace is celebrated on September 21 each year to recognize the efforts of those who have worked hard to end conflict and promote peace. The International Day of Peace is also a day of ceasefire – personal or political.

Let me start by personally saying that today is more a day of reflection for me. I believe we need more peace and love throughout our own great planet. I believe we all need to learn how to get along and to love our neighbors regardless of our race, religions, or our sexuality. We are all God's children, all human and in a way all brothers and sisters.  I am not a fan of war but I do support our troops and am very thankful for the many men and women who give their time, families, and sometimes their lives for our great country! So I bring you this blog hop as a day to reflect on what your own personal definition of Peace is in your life.
No matter how big or small.

I decided after thinking long and hard that I wanted to  create some cards. So I looked online for some digital images and the perfect quotes to go along with them. I hope they inspire you and help you to reflect on the theme of peace and love.
