nobel peace prize

Today President Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his "extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples."  He is only the fourth president to be honored with this award, and the first to receive it during his first year in office.  This brings back memories of why I voted for change back in November 2008.  Yes, we can heal this nation.

The Nobel Peace Prize committee said, "Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world's attention and given its people hope for a better future."
