This year Sir Nicholas Winton was nominated for the Nobel Peace price. Its the third nomination attempt and its based on a petition organised by students and signed by more than 200 000 people. Hope it will work this time.

Every time I have a bad day, or something doesn't work, I think of people like Sir Nicolas, who used their bad days to do amazing things. To actually save so many lives in such a dark time is such a huge act of heroism that I draw inspiration from that.

Of course, we cannot hope to possibly achieve anything as important as this, but that should not stop us striving.
