Thank you for the Peace Prize!
I believe in peace just like you.
And we peace-believers see it as our noble task to make everybody in the world feel the same.
But not everybody in the world wants to.
The people of the world are two tribes living in the desert.
One tribe lives in the country with the well in it. The other lives in the country beyond.
The tribe in the country with the well in it wants peace.
The tribe in the country beyond doesn't want peace - it wants water!
The tribe IN the country beyond IS probably a little BIT uncivilized AND doesn't even have a word for "peace". But it does have one for thirst, which, in this situation, is more or less the same.
The Peace Committee in the country with the well in it, is made up of good, wise, wealthy, beautiful people who are not thirsty (that's why they have the TIME AND energy FOR the committee).
The people FROM the country WITH the well IN it talk a lot about the peace prize the Committee award TO other people FROM the country WITH the well IN it.
The people FROM the country beyond do NOT talk a lot about the peace prize.
