A Day of Peace

Tomorrow, 10th December, will see a memorial service held in South Africa for the former president, Nelson Mandela, a true hero of the modern age.

Also on this day, in Stockholm, Sweden, the Nobel prize ceremony takes place to honour people from across the globe who have striven to provide benefit to humankind through physics, chemistry, medicine, literature or enabling peace across nations.  Nelson Mandela received this award, jointly with the then SA president F W de Klerk, in 1993.

As it is also the second week of Advent, of which the focus is Peace, it is the perfect opportunity to share with children the ideas contained within and to promote a better understanding of the wider world.
