Peace Prize Honors Diplomatic Shift

RECEIVED Fri., Oct. 9, 2009

Dear Editor,
    There is surprise over President Barack Obama being honored with a Nobel Peace Prize. As Americans, we celebrate our independence on July 4. This is the day we decided we were free. Most countries celebrate because of a battle. We celebrate because of a shift of our intention. This peace prize is the same. It honors our president for the shift of our intention, as a country, to a commitment to peace.
