Open Thread

by Mary

Nelson Mandela's birthday was the occasion for the first gathering of a new group called The Elders dedicated to finding solutions to some of the world's problems. Four of the members are Nobel Peace Prize winners, including our own Jimmy Carter. Let's hope an international body of elders who are commited to working together collaboratively can provide the world some much needed advice and guidance. Sadly, Aung San Suu Kyi, one of the people asked to be part of this group, was unable to attend as she is still under detention in Myanmar.

Your turn now.
