The noble price for peace

On September 2, 1993, at noon, most of South Africa came to a standstill to pray for peace and unity. Following on the heels of this wonderful sign of the times, Nelson Mandela and F. W. de Klerk jointly won the Nobel Peace Prize for 1993.

The quality common to both of these men is a willingness to take active steps for peace. They helped create peace where there was hatred, and helped reconcile groups of people who had been separated for generations by apartheid. They redirected their country toward good by displaying patience, tolerance, forgiveness, love, and respect—qualities so desperately needed to resolve the problems of South Africa and of the world.
