President Obama Wins Nobel Peace Prize

Hope - ObamaI am stunned to wake up to the news that President Barack Obama has won The Nobel Peace Prize, while I slept.  The range of emotions and thoughts running through my mind are hard to pin down to a reaction to this.

It makes me want to be a better person…it makes me want to be “greeener” and more frugal and a postive influence on any life I may touch. It fills me with a huge responsibility to “have his back” and do anything I can to support him and do my part to make the World a better place.

It doesnt fill me with “Hope”…the main reason he won…it makes me want to be part OF that Hope.

Congratulations, Mr. President. You do certainly do us proud…

  1. That WAS a shocker.

    Wow….I dunno, but it’s a bit weird to give him the prize for just existing, isn’t it?

    What has he done to deserve it? I don’t see anything being much more peaceful than it was in January 09.

    I thought he handled that question pretty well, stating in effect that he doesn’t deserve it yet.

    I think it says a lot about America’s character that we could shrug off the history of racism, and embrace his cool rationalism. Maybe the prize is for the American voters, as a thank you from the European worldview…

    He is doing a good job so far, in very difficult circumstances, however, there is only so much that can be done, without making things worse somewhere else. He’ll be a judged a good president if he just doesn’t screw things up too badly.

    And THAT is waaay harder than it looks!~

  2. I think the hope was that others would have the reaction I did…”Hey, we better help this guy EARN this thing!” Not that I can do much for “peace”…but yes, I think the World wants Americans to get behind him and support his initiatives. The Nobel Prize was their way of sending a message to those who can make or break The President’s highest hopes for the Country and the World.

  3. I agree wholeheartedly with you Ardell. To move a country like the United States — in the eyes of all countries around the world — from being perceived as one of the most belligerent Americas ever to one that decides it wants to work with the rest of the world — that is the real definition of a path towards peace. We need to give each other hope – we need to give ourselves hope. It’s something to strive for. So let’s be glad for President Obama and the United States as a whole that the international community has hope in us.
