2014 Nobel Peace Prize Winners - YAY!

For once I have to say that I am proud of the choices the Nobel Peace Prize group did. It was two real people. Malala is the girl / lady who was shot in the head sticking up for Muslim women who wish to seek an education. Kailash I had not heard of before, but he is trying to stop world slavery, at least for children, and has made some progress. I have heard that the world still has 23 million slaves and 1 million of those are children. And we have seen female slaves taken lately by Isis and also young Christian girls in Africa taken by Boka Haram. Oddly, the press does not seem to care that slavery continues this day. I care. And I applaud the Nobel Peace Prize group for steering clear of cheap politics and going after what I call ... real looking people.
