Nominate Peace Heroes

Peace Heroes is a great initiative to honor the unsung heroes during the post-election violence in Kenya (it’s also one of the groups running the alpha version of Ushahidi). The initiative is asking Kenyans to nominate “people who, during moments of crisis and violence, risked their own lives to save members of other communities,…reached out to neighbours or to those in camps, to give a helping hand…who launched peace initiatives, peace marches and [performed] symbolic acts around the country to restore the damage done and create positive change.”

While the headlines have been dominated by the perpetrators of the violence and what should happen to them, it is SO important to recognize the Kenyans who committed acts of peace…those were tough times when even the best of us found it hard to distance ourselves from the negativity…lets take the time to recognize those who in their own small way helped bring us back from the brink.
