Peace: Celebrating our common humanity

malalaKailash_SatyarthiAt first glance, this year’s Nobel Peace Prize winners, Kailash Satyarthi and  Malala Yousafzai, are a study in opposites. An Indian and a Pakistani. A Hindu and a Muslim. A man and a woman. Members of two different generations.

But much more than that, here are two human beings dedicated to protecting and providing opportunities to all the children in the world.

Focusing on what we share in common, not on our differences. Looking beyond the labels. Honoring those with vision, courage, and a heart for humanity. Isn’t that what peace is all about?
