Peace Prize

The 2011 Nobel peace prize was recently awarded to Tawakkul Karman, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, and Leymah Gbowee of Liberia, all leaders in their respective countries for promoting civil rights.

For today’s topic, consider a local peace prize for your workplace, town or your community. Who in your daily world deserves to be recognized for promoting peace and good will?

If you can’t think of someone you know today, was there someone from your past who comes to mind?

I would give the award to my boyfriend Sam, who works like a dog, but is still always considerate and kind to pretty much everyone.

Sometimes he forgets to be entirely polite all of the time, but he is pretty sleep deprived…

He works around the clock, so other folks can have a good time, and hardly has any built-up resentment at all, which is better than I could ever do, and you can push me a pretty far ways (if I may say so).
