“She deserves an award more prestigious than the Nobel Peace Prize” Atsou said innocently.
“Please Atsou! There is not any Peace Prize more prestigious than the Nobel one. The Nobel Peace Prize is the most prestigious one in the world” replied
“If there is no prize more prestigious than the Nobel Peace Prize, a most prestigious one must be created.” Atsou insisted.
“What do you hold against the Nobel Peace Prize?”
“Nothing at all! I appreciate Mr. Nobel for offering his fortune to reward the deserving people in chemistry, in literature, in physiology and in physics;
but I don’t see how the money coming from the ‘death instruments’ sales could reward the peace. All I want is the creation of the most prestigious peace
prize by someone whose life is the perfect example of peace maker; an authentic example of social justice seeker and a real universal progress contributor”
Atsou said with conviction.
