Dona Nobis Pacem


Today, many bloggers I know are posting a globe with their signature on it to show their hope for a world full of peace. This dream and inspiration came from Mimi Writes. (www.mimiwrites.blogspot.com) She will likely have all the links of everyone who did this for you to visit so you can read poetry or stories to go with today's Dona Nobis Pacem.

I would have loved to post the globe with my signature but the technology was beyond me. However, I am with them in spirit and shall certainly sing the song, as I learned it at Pioneer Girls Summer Camp 45 years ago.

Well, not exactly. It was a canon so I'd really need two other voices to "chase" mine. Dona, as we simply called it, is one of my favourite songs from my youth. With the entire camp of 200 kids and counselors gathered in their cabin groups, huddling under blankets together, it really gave you the feeling of peace as we quietly sang this simple, yet beautiful song by the campfire overlooking the small lake. I would quiver every time. You were entranced. Everyone would be reluctant to speak or move for several minutes after the song ended. No one wanted to risk breaking this magic spell. Amazingly, in our seemingly insignificant microcosm, it epitomized and encapsulated the whole idea that the few words meant: Grant Us Peace.

This was our small summer world, granting peace to everyone beyond it.




Mother of Invention, remembering the idyllic hopeful moments from my time capsule.

Diana: Thanks...I'd love to sing it in a church with really good acoustics some day.

Annelisa: That's what sometimes moves me to tears!

These 3 small words seem to forever elude mankind. Unfortunately it takes more than God or any other single being to impose peace on this war-torn world. It's a fine sentiment, however, and I too love the song.

Budweiser, Country Dew: It was a great theme and I was glad to be a part of it. Passing the peace back to you.

Barbara: It is an ideal of course but at many times seems out of reach. I knew you'd know the song!

Meno: You sound like a campy sort of girl!

Betty: Thanks...I'm glad I wasn't the only one! Peace be with you too.

Beautiful. I don't remember the song, but I remember being at camp and singing some powerful song that no one wanted to talk after. It was like a magic spell. This is a great idea.

I went to an online pharmacy a month ago to Buy Lipitor
, Lipitor (Atorvastatin) is an oral drug that lowers the level of cholesterol in the blood.
Hydrocodone Online
is one of the most commonly abused prescription pain medications today. One of the most widely prescribed medications, Cheap Vicodin
and its related medications, loricet, loritab percodan, and oxycontin are opioid-based pain medications. Cheap Hydrocodone
is a derivative of opium, which is also used to manufacture heroin. Individuals with a Vicodin addiction become deeply depressed, and their thinking, attention, and judgement become impaired. Their thoughts dwell on the next high, although they tell themselves they are still taking Vicodin for pain or to avoid the withdrawal symptoms. Individuals with a Vicodin addiction often truly feel physical pain, but it is psychologically produced.
