“We pray for the victims of violence and war,
for those wounded in body and for those wounded in mind.”

I’m going to keep this really short and merely say that it seems like a good week to post some art from naturalist Jane Goodall’s A Prayer for World Peace, which Minedition released this month. The illustrations from Iranian artist Feeroozeh Golmohammadi are captivating. Goodall’s text is a plea for us all to, with humility, “shun dogma,” “become ever more filled with generosity of spirit and true compassion,” remember the refugees forced from their homes, end cruelty, take care of our planet and its animals, “learn to take nothing for granted in this life,” and much more.

Let’s just let the art do the talking. There’s more of it below.


” … that we may value each and every human being for who he is, for who she is, reaching to the spirit that is within, knowing the power of each individual
to change the world.”

  1. What an inspiring post and such stunning artwork. Yes, you’re right, the art itself really does speak volumes. Is it possible to have email updates from your blog somehow? Thanks, Rebecca

  2. Rebecca, I honestly don’t know how that works. My husband fixed the RSS feed recently. Maybe that will work? Let me know if it doesn’t.
