Obama was recently given the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize for his "extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples."
There has been expected controversy over this decision and no matter what your position, the fact that people are talking is a wonderful move away from apathy and towards thoughtful conscientious progress.
Obama seems to agree that this momentous act should not be taken as a pat on the back but as "a call to action." There is much work to be done, not just by Barack but by every individul who plays a part in creating the society that we live in today.
What you think?
