Book of the Week: The Words of Peace

The Words of Peace
Selections from speeches of the winners of the Nobel Peace Prize

“In our private and individual lives, all of us have a need to seek for heroes. The Nobel Peace Prize was established to honour the heroes of peace, and this book presents a collection of well-chosen excerpts from their addresses. Many of the hearoes of peace who speak to us in these pages have spoken far more vibrantly in their deeds, motivated by this spirit. As we have found inspiration in their work for peace, so may we find inspiration in their “Words of Peace” -President Jimmy Carter

This Christmas, give the gift of history to your loved ones and friends.

The DVD, George Price – Man of Purpose and Vision takes you on a short journey through Belize’s history in search of George Price, the man behind the politician who “by the Might of Truth and the Grace of God” led the young Nation of Belize from a British colony to a strong, dynamic and independent country.

DVDs are available at the Centre at $25.00. Also available at: The Book Centre, Old Belize and The Art Box.

 

Have you ever considered the problems of Belize and asked yourself, “How can one person make a difference?” The answer: three people at a time.

Has anyone ever done something in your life that changed it for the better? This December, in the true Christmas spirit, we challenge you not to pay them back, but to pay it forward, giving three more people the life-changing gift of kindness. Start with a friend, family member, neighbor, co-worker or stranger and join us as we make a better Belize and a better world!

How can I pay it forward?  Treat someone to dinner…  Give an unexpected gift to a family who cannot afford it…  Be there for someone…  Pay a stranger’s groceries…  Do something for someone that they couldn’t do on their own…  and simply ask to Pay it Forward!

Tell us your Pay it Forward-story on Facebook (The George Price Centre) or via e-mail at info@gpcbelize.com

Giving – How each of us can change the world
By Bill Clinton

Here, from Bill Clinton, is a call to action. Giving is an inspiring look at how each of us can change the world. First, it reveals the extraordinary and innovative efforts now being made by companies and organizations-and by individuals-to solve problems and save lives both “down the street and around the world.” Then it urges us to seek out what each of us, “regardless of income, available time, age, and skills,” can do to help, to give people a chance to live out their dreams.  “We all have the capacity to do great things,” President Clinton says. “My hope is that the people and stories in this book will lift spirits, touch hearts, and demonstrate that citizen activism and service can be a powerful agent of change in the world.”
