Thank you, Martti Ahtisaari, for being you. Congratulations!
I recall that Deepak Chopra designated seven practices for peace in his book "Peace is the Way".(1)
Friday (Creating for Peace)
Saturday (Sharing for Peace)
Sunday (Being for Peace)
Monday (Thinking for Peace)
Tuesday (Feeling for Peace)
Wednesday (Speaking for Peace)
Thursday (Acting for Peace)
Nobel Committee made the announcement today, Friday, 10 October, 2008. The Prize will be presented to Ahtisaari on Alfred Nobel's birthday, Wednesday, 10 December 2008.(2)
I agree with the Nobel committee chairman Ole Danbolt Mjoes who said, Ahtisaari has shown his 'sisu'.* A reminder, people: Show your sisu for peace.
(*) Finnish word for 'guts' or stubborn determination.(3)
