honour them

Abbe Normal requests: There's enough warblogs, how about some peaceblogs?

In little reported news today, Saryodaya, a Sri Lankan organization that has long been working for peace, sponsored an event where an expected 500,000 people came together in Anuradhapura, Sri Lanka, to meditate for peace. Everyone was dressed in white, there were no speeches or speaking, just meditation. In a land where simply being for peace can easily get you killed, joining in this group meditation took courage, and made a powerful statement too.
