Nobel Peace Prize Kofi Annan / by Patrick Lane

I recently had the privilege of meeting 2001 Nobel Peace Prize-winner Kofi Annan, Security General for the United Nations, with humble beginnings in Africa's Gold Coast.  I was honored to be given his attention while taking his portrait, and noted his kind, gentle behavior.  For more information about Annan visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kofi_Annan.  Here is a web link to his 2001 Nobel Lecture in Oslo. http://nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/peace/laureates/2001/annan-lecture.html
