Glimpse of Greatness

One week in Norway and it feels alrite. Definitely very cold but can handle it as it is not very windy. Got bored of swtching channels only to see most of it is in Norwegian, me and my roomie went for a walk in Oslo City on Sunday. He is from Algeria and is a very nice guy. We talked about respective countries and cultures. Just then we passed the 'Grand Hotel' on the Karl Johan's Gate in Oslo, and we saw big entourage and heavy security waiting for someone and suddenly we realised thats where IAEA President, Mr. Mohammed El Baradei, was put up. People were waiting outside in the cold just to have a glimpse of this Year's Nobel Peace Prize winner. Just as were expecting He came out of the hotel and got in to his car and went with his security to some place. Well, Now i can write in my dairy that I caught a glimpse of a nobel peace prize winner. Closest I could ever be to Greatness...

El Baradei is not greatness. He is the exact opposite of greatness and in fact, he is totally ungreatful.

Umm... My concept of greatness came from the fact that He has received Nobel Peace Prize award. I am not even getting into a debate of whether he is actually great or not, due to my lack of facts about him. but whats about being anonymous? why cant u put ur name at the end of your comment?

I don't want my name up there as I do not want any greatness. After all, what's in a name?
