The wisdom-light of Secretary-General Kofi Annan

“The only true prize will be peace itself.”

Just after hearing that he had won humanity’s highest honour, the Nobel Peace Prize, the Secretary-General offered a deeply moving address at the United Nations General Assembly.

With utmost clarity and certainty, Nobel Laureate Kofi Annan voiced forth, “The only true prize will be peace itself.”

Our beloved Secretary-General is empty of self-aggrandisement. At the moment of his greatest personal victory, he speaks the purest truth for the betterment of the entire humanity.

During his historic Nobel Lecture in Oslo, Kofi Annan bestows upon us his soul’s ocean-vast wisdom: “We can love what we are, without hating what, and who, we are not.”

O peace-hungry brothers and sisters, come, come! It is high time for us to walk and run behind him to receive boundless illumination-light.

To our great sadness, some years we sadly fail to concur with the decision that the Nobel Committee makes regarding the Nobel Peace Prize winner. But this time, to our greatest joy and satisfaction, Secretary-General Kofi Annan as the Nobel Peace Prize winner has enormously pleased all citizens of the world who cherish peace. This choice made by the Nobel Committee shall echo and re-echo in the aspiring peace-dreaming, peace-loving, peace-spreading and peace-fulfilling world-heart-hope.

Here is the proof of how the world regards the Secretary-General’s achievements. The heart of the entire world rings with boundless ecstasy at the Secretary-General’s being chosen as the Nobel Peace Prize winner.
