Al Gore Nobel Peace Prize Co-Winner
Albert Arnold Gore, Jr., or Al Gore (born March 31, 1948) was the forty-fifth Vice President of the United States, serving from 1993 to 2001 under President Bill Clinton. Prior to the vice presidency, Gore served in the U. S. House of Representatives (1977–85) and the U. S. Senate (1985–93), representing Tennessee. Gore starred in the documentary film An Inconvenient Truth, which won an Academy Award. His television station, Current TV, received an Emmy Award and he shared the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
Al Gore has never stopped being active in pursuing his passion and the interest that he likes. Right from a young age, he was found to be concerned to make the world a better place to live in for everybody. He was determined that his life would be an impact on those whom it should be in contact with.
Similarly, as Christians, we are called to be lights of the world and salt of the earth. If we desire not to be light and salt, then Jesus said we would not be of any use anymore both to God, humanity, your family and your community.
We may not have a worldwide profile like Al Gore but in our sphere of influence and circle of community, we should shine as Jesus would want us to shine.
Maybe, this should make us ponder on our life and consider that from today onwards, how can we be a tool in the Master's hand. Francis Yeoh of YTL Corporation once said, that God is the writer, he is only the pen. Would you be a pen in the Lord's hand today?
