The Peace Symbol Turns Fifty

Thanks to Dominique Foucart at Réseau Médiation for directing us to the web site of the 50th Anniversary of the Peace Symbol here -- which we picked up in Dominique's weekly column -- this week in the anglophone blogosphère.  

Take a look.  Not only will you find a world of peace symbol images, but also other Peace Sign memorabilia.  Yes, I'm nostalgic and yes, it's not as easy as flashing the "peace sign" at the on-lookers from a 1969 Viet Nam War protest rally, but it is what we all want and it is possible. 

Why do I continue to believe in peace despite having lived a sufficient number of years to become weary and cynical?

Because it was only a few hundred years ago that our very British ancestors (well, my very British ancestors) were beheading traitors and putting their heads on spikes on the London Bridge.

You've got to admit, things have gotten better over time!

The peace symbol used here was contributed to the Peace Symbol Anniversary site by Kirsten Joost of Toronto Canada.  Thanks Kirsten!

Wow...50 years. It's really neat to learn this, Vickie.

When I was introduced to my husband, he was wearing a white t-shirt with a globe on the front, onto which was superimposed the peace symbol. Beneath was the word "imagine." I knew right then there was something good about the guy!
