recently, three women in the developing world were awarded the nobel peace prize for their work. read this article on cnn.com to learn more about these three amazing women and why they were chosen.
but this quote from one of them — liberian president Ellen Johnson Sirleaf — really caught my eye (and mind, and heart):
“I urge my sisters, and my brothers, not to be afraid. Be not afraid to denounce injustice, though you may be outnumbered. Be not afraid to seek peace, even if your voice may be small. Be not afraid to demand peace.”
ooh — sounds biblical. i want my life to be a part of that.
