I’ve been pretty busy lately and didn’t have much of a chance to blog. But I have to back track a bit and discuss the old news of Barack Obama winning the Nobel Peace prize. First of all I have to say I am proud. Though many were put off at his winning it, saying that he hadn’t accomplished anything, that in itself is ridiculous. But besides that the reasons given were very specific.
“for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples”
With the recent climate we’ve had and still with the personal static that comes his way from within his own country over essentials and non-essentials alike, the president is and has continued to be a person of class giving opportunity for positive dialogue.
I think any president will garner needed criticism from the people he governs as we muddle through our nations issues. But the prize itself is just that. A reward and acknowledgment of great achievement. It should be celebrated as just that. Our nation should be proud. I am.
