Bloggers Unite


Ever heard of Bloggers Unite? Its a site that takes up different causes and then works to harness the power of the blogosphere behind it. The idea is to have as many people as possible post about it on the same day leading to increased awareness throughout first the blogosphere and then the world.

Poets Who Blog will join in on Blogger Unite's next effort. On May 15th they ask all bloggers to unite for human rights. Not everyone in this world enjoys the same freedoms you do. If you want to be part of our effort, then write a poem about the plight of people who do not have the right to free speech, free assembly, to challenge their government, to move across borders freely, to practice their religion without risking imprisonment, etc, and then send that poem to poetswhoblog@yahoo.com

Put Poetry for Human Rights in subject line. I will post any poem submitted by May 15th (but it most be on topic.) Lets flood PWB with a our heartfelt pleas for justice and our support for those who go to sleep each night without the basic freedoms others have the luxary to take for granted. You retain all rights to your poem. Don't worry about sending me a bio this time but I do need a link to your blog.

Thanks to Paisley from Just Paisley for letting me know about the Blogger's Unite site. Click here to check them out.

Writerwoman - This is a great idea. Every reasonable person on the Left, the Right and in the middle should support all the rights of all humans all over the world, no matter what, even if it's not PC.

I hope you are well. I wanted to say hello and let you know that I recently self-published my first 'Hard To Swallow - Absurd Thoughts About God' book through Lulu Publishing. It was quite easy to use and totally FREE too. Thank you very much for visiting my blogs and for linking to me, it has been a huge inspiration.

I plan to eventually give a copy of the hardcover book to most of my offline friends; conservatives, moderates, and liberals. I think the brevity of the 'absurd thoughts' will be a good way to help them to think about many of today's big issues.

Please download the FREE eBook(s), I'd love to hear what you think about them.

Try 'Hard To Swallow - Live', its download doesn't cost me anything.
I'm giving it away to ALL my blogging buddies, acquaintances, visitors, and my favorite blogs and their readers. I decided that making it 'FREE for a Limited Time' at Lulu is better and easier than having people have to email me for a copy.

Obviously then, FREE for anybody, so go for it guys! Enjoy! Also, if you like it, please feel FREE to send it to your friends too. Let it go viral, thank you!

All real freedom starts with freedom of speech. If there is no freedom of speech, then there can be no real freedom.

The 'War of the Words' continues...

God of the Universe says
have regular book burnings

double as barbecues
post public executions

don't pay attention

ignore absurd thoughts
that are uncomfortable
