I just found out that Martti Ahtisaari, the father of my dear friend Marko Ahtisaari has won the Nobel Peace Prize. In times like this when global recession is almost a certainty men lke Martti Ahtisaari, who are few and hard to come by, will be in more demand than ever. Last time we had a global recession we ended up in WWII. Poverty makes people compete harder and sometimes war is simply seen as competition via other means. And it is then that a man with the incredible track record as a pacifist as former President of Finland Martti Ahtisaari is needed more than ever. Congratulations!
And btw, he can smile and relate well to people, but this is the only picture I could find sorry. Ok now I have a better picture here from Marko and Lisa´s wedding. Thanks Rodrigo!
