Just as there are architects of war, there are architects of peace. They have no armies behind them, and often have no political power. But like the generals of war, they plan strategies and muster resources to gain popular support for their causes. Also like great military leaders, the great ones have altered the world landscape and changed history.
But these architects of peace — the Nobel Peace Prize winners — are different from those who build and execute wars. They have not only influenced events — they have in the process made us better people.
Please spend a little time getting to know these men and women. Because in large part, the events around you will be determined by who gets your support — the architects of war, or the architects of peace.
