Remembrance Day – also known as Poppy Day, Armistice Day (the event it commemorates) or Veterans Day – is a day to commemorate the sacrifices of members of the armed forces and of civilians in times of war, specifically since the First World War. It is observed on 11 November to recall the end of World War I on that date in 1918. (Major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of…Continue

“Anywhere people need to feel connected, I bring my drums and show them that connecting with people is easy. And yes, we can work together as humans to create magic. Rhythm succeeds where words often fail.”
It was one day before the attack into Gaza, and I came into iPeace with no idea of what was about to happen. I was excited to see the constructive energy of this network, to feel the vision of its founder, to take the pulse of its vibrantly creative… Continue
Going back. To where I cam from. To the sunshine, the earthquakes, the crime and coffee shops. To the huge streets, shopping malls, good music systems in stores, palm trees. To old friends, relatives, sales, long straight streets, quiet cars.
It's my old town. But not really. It never felt just right.
I don't know. I don't really belong - not there, nor here.
When you have been in a… Continue
[Our actions to heal the world] are not broad mandates to eradicate poverty, end famine, or stop violence in war-torn countries...

When I sat down to write a blog post in October 2006, I didn't expect it to birth a movement. Or did I? But that is exactly what happened. Frustrated and bewildered by the state of affairs in our world, I offered a challenge to my readers on my blog, Mimi Writes: What can we do? I asked. I tossed out an idea: Let's all write a blog post about peace. And while we're at it, let's make some noise.… Continue
When I was still a kid, I always can we think best for ourselves. I always heard from my parent saying that life is always tough for them and working hard is a must for them in order to maintain current life style. Is that entirely true, and do we really have to work so hard just to get what we want? After growing up, the same thing happens to me as well as people around me. Then I ask myself another question, when the time we get what we think we want, is that really what we…

Even though apparently the goal was not reached in'89 a seed was planted - if it die...
This blog is also about how a plan (Ï want to be a musician") would open up…Continue

hoped would never break..Allowing this inner beast to unfold..
For he knew everyday..When he awakened to begin his day..
