    Peace Poem 2016, a chain of over 250 poems by writers from all over the world, is now available for download at Praxis Online Magazine—a wonderful celebration of International Day of Peace. I and many other WordPress bloggers participated this year and I hope many more will join in to speak out for peace in 2017.

    • Thanks for the share and contribution ❤

      • I am so proud to be a part of this because with the collaboration of people from all over the world, you gave a platform for all voices on such an important topic. I heard the voices from California, from the UK, Ireland, Fellow Chicagoans, etc… voices of real people, in the everyday, of all ages, speak about peace. This is a treasure, this is what it is all about with a fantastic energy lifting one another up to stand firm, and stand together. Wonderful! I am so excited here reading all the poems, listening to the heart of poets, emotionally moving through different insights and perspectives. Yes, definitely, I;m honored to be with such great company. I am also grateful to you, Michael and Marie for all of your hard work and dedication and to Praxis and Stanford for honoring unity and vision. 🙂

      • Thank you so much Tammy for the kind words of encouragement…we could not have done it without you ❤

Special shout out to Michael, Neha, and Marie for getting this project off the ground, and then taking it to the next level. Thanks, also, to Praxis Magazine for your professionalism and support!

  16. Yes, we made it! This is amazing and for sure I will be part of it next year again!!! Thank you, Neha, Michael and Marie!

    It’s published!!! More than 250 poems for peace from all over the world are ready to be viewed and/or downloaded in the Praxis Magazine Online! Thank you, Michael, Marie & Neha for launching this!

    Honored to be a part of this poetry collaboration about peace and stopping the violence. Mine is focused on inner peace and ending violence toward ourselves through suicide. It can be found on p. 88. But check them all out, they are awesome! We must stop the violence. Let peace begin with me!

  19. What a wonderful project, and to have so much input from around the world? Impressive. With the exception of plans for “bigger and better” next year, what are the long term goals of this project? This is, to a large degree, “preaching to the converted”, so are there any plans to use this collaboration such that the message of peace is broadcast to a wider audience? Being archived at Stanford is really nice for posterity, but are there no plans for exploiting this work to further peace at an International level? Just some thoughts, and my apologies in advance if I have missed something! That is happening more as I get older! 🙂

    • Thank you so much and for your thoughts, we are in the process of seeing what we can do for next year…given this was a spur of the moment project when we got started, we are proud of our accomplishments but as you pointed out there is still work to be done 🙂

    We are published! I am honored to have been a part of this inspiring collaboration (you can see my entries on pages 57-59). Please find a quiet corner and immerse yourself in this dream of peace for our world. The sheer diversity of entries from around the world is breathtaking! We are so much more alike in our hopes for peace than we are different! May you, may we all know peace and learn to love one another. ~ kat

    A grand collaboration of around 250 poets across the globe for the #PoetsForPeace. This collaboration is against violence. This got published in Praxis Magazine which is available in free downloadable PDF. Feeling proud to be a part for the same. Do have a look to go through some precious gems of all the poets across the globe. I was able to contribute one poem titled “Igniting the flame of serenity”. 🙂
