Dona Nobis Pacem* / #blog4peace

It's November 4, and we're participating in the annual "BlogBlast for Peace." Now in its 15th year, this movement started by Mimi Lenox has grown to include thousands of bloggers in hundreds of countries - and countless other folks on various forms of social media - all taking the day to spread messages of love, hope and peace.

This November 4 sure is different than any other. With the spiraling global pandemic, the ongoing fight against social injustice, and so much divisiveness and political and economic upheaval, our world isn't exactly peaceful. Is it possible to find inner peace in such a sea of anxiety? Our totally chill (and super adoptable) pal Truman thinks it is. His advice for cats is, "close your eyes, take a deep breath, and purr." And he says humans can replace the part about purring with making sure to hold fast to hope, and practicing self-care. We may not be able to change the world, but we can do what we can to change our own worlds, right?

We're hoping for better days ahead. Our wish, as always, is for all beings everywhere is that they have lives and homes that are abundantly full of peace and love. (*Dona Nobis Pacem is Latin for "Grant us peace.")
