Congratulate the people of the Marshall Islands

                                                            How Stuff Works
I had a whole other thing lined up for today, but I just got word that for the first time in its history, the Right Livelihood Award was given to an entire nation: the people of the Marshall Islands, "in recognition of their vision and courage to take legal action against the nuclear powers for failing to honor their disarmament obligations under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and customary international law."

If you'd like to, the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation offers you a chance to congratulate the Marshallese people right HERE. And you can also watch Foreign Minister Tony de Brum's acceptance speech on behalf of his people below.
