October 2012

a source of inspiration

on Fri 19 Oct 2012

When it was announced last week that this year's Nobel Peace Prize is awarded to the European Union I was a little disappointed: much as I'm very Europhil and very supportive of building and strengthening relationships across Europe and especially across often quite random borders – the EU to me is a very abstract, anonymous and massive building with endless corridors that produces laws & policies and has a canteen where real people meet over a cuppa to disagree.

Somehow I felt a little betrayed by not having such a real person awarded the prize – someone inspiring who I can look at or up to and take inspiration
