|This is a wonderful honor. Laurels must feel good! Congratulations to you. Blessings to you for using your way with words as a means for the desire for peace. I can't imagine what it must be like for the powerless people of your country in their persecution...like many other nations. I admire poets who are constructive rather than destructive and use their gifts to pave roads to freedom. Seems this is you.
