Thimble 66 - Dove of Peace

The Dove of Peace is a Christian symbol, but the olive branch it carries belongs to the Greek /Roman goddess of Peace - Eirene. In earliest Christian art the dove was used to symbolise spiritual peace. It was only later, when the dove was depicted carrying an olive branch, that it became a symbol for Peace in a more literal sense of non-violence. as a symbol for a more literal kind of Peace.

Can one everyday person really make a difference and change the world? Isn't that a bit like trying to empty the ocean with a thimble?

Maybe... but what if you got everyone to help you?
What if we bailed with a billion thimbles?

These are my Thimblefuls for Peace... I hope they make you think.
