What a joyful realization that we celebrate and raise awareness of world peace at SL Peacefest at the same time athletes from around the world will be right in the middle of the 2008 Beijing Olympics

One World, One Dream

One World, One Dream

 I checked the schedule, and the games will be in full swing with many popular events taking place simultaneous to our 3 day festival of Peace in Second Life! 

A perfect companion and inspiration to bring the world closer, this small and beautiful place, with generous giving of appreciation and hope.  It can be done through Second Life. It has been done! In fact I just learned that Relay for Life earned 200 thousand U.S. Dollars through Second Life in one 24 hour event!

The Theme of this year’s olympics is “One World, One Dream”.  I second that! May that same oneness surround our SL Peacefest events, contributors, performers, panelists, artists, and all who care about our common goal of Peace.

One of our wonderful leaders – Cotton – found a site both online and in-world which promotes nonprofit activity in Second Life. This is a new project and we are working on partnering with them to help us promote SL Peacefest 08.

One thing we do have now, which is linked to their site, is a wiki space. This is a membership site allowing ongoing discussions about the projects. Please take a couple minutes to join the wiki site, then to join the SL Peacefest and NPSL wiki’s. The more we work together, the more our results will be multiplied. Only takes a minute, is free, and you can set your own preferences. The more who join and participate both here on the blog and on the wiki site, the better for our visibility. The sims inworld have spaces available for offices, so we may want to set up a presence there. …Just thinking out loud. Thanks in advance to all of you for your help!

You are the greatest!

A co-worker friend of mine collects old LP’s. Our colleagues

Sometimes bring in theirs to share, and today’s

batch of around 200 classics contained Cat Stevens’

Teaser and the Firecat. There are some great songs on this

Record, such as Morning has Broken, Moonshadow, and yes,

our beloved Peace Train.

My friend knows about my passion for the Peace Train, so

he gave the album to me. Now I have heard the song

a gazillion times but must admit I had never paid a

whole lot of attention to the lyrics, which, I now know

are brilliant and beautiful!

I am sure the full lyrics are out there to

find if you wish, but here are a few nuggets

directly from the inside cover…..

I’ve been smiling lately, dreaming about the world as one and I believe it could be….

Peace train sounding louder, glide on the peace train

Get your bags together, go bring your good friends too, cause it’s getting nearer, it soon will be with you

Come and join the living, its not so far from you and it’s getting nearer

Oh I’ve been crying lately thinking about the world as it is.

Why must we go on hating, why can’t we live in bliss?

Come on now peace train

Oh, please train…


The Peace Train is sounding louder as we get closer to our first SL Peacefest event! Many are joining the group and coming up with fantastic ideas on how to make this event even more in line with our goals and dream of a more peaceful planet.

Kudos to all who are working for peace, and to all who may still join us on our quest!
