I WONDER WHY…

Published October 9, 2020 by Nan Mykel

The 2020 Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded to the World Food Programme.
The prize is one of the most prestigious in the world and recognizes those who have contributed the most towards ending conflict, promoting peace and building relationships between nations. This year’s award carries particular significance in a period dominated by division, economic woes and a global pandemic.

Previous winners include former US Presidents Barack Obama and Jimmy Carter, Malala Yousafzai, Kofi Annan, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King Jr. and the European Union.

I wonder why our president wasn’t given the award.

  • Nan, I am certain we will hear from the horse’s mouth as to why he should have gotten it. We should not forget, he is a person who complained when his “The Apprentice” show did not win an Emmy. It is all about The Donald. This was a good choice, by the way, but I was hoping Greta Thunberg would win. Keith
