Repeat after me. "Your opinion doesn't matter to anyone but yourself."
I direct this at all the people (example) who don't think President Obama "deserved" to win the Nobel Peace Prize.
Are you on the Nobel Peace Prize committee? No? Then who cares what your opinion is?
Everyone's entitled to their opinion, of course, and everyone's got one, but not every opinion matters.
I say this as a guy who writes his opinions with some regularity on his blog. Yes, I have an opinion. But I'm under no illusions that my opinions actually matter. They don't!
Now if I was on the Nobel Peace Prize committee...
Updated: Ha! Even the recipient, Mr. Obama himself, doesn't think he deserves it. Yet another opinion that doesn't count!
To be honest, I do not feel that I deserve to be in the company of so many of the transformative figures who've been honored by this prize -- men and women who've inspired me and inspired the entire world through their courageous pursuit of peace.
