Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Wangari Maathai Changed the World

Nobel Peace Prize winner Wangari Maathai. A true visionary and leader of peace.  Her life saved many lives and changed the world. I'm grateful to have known her.

“Every person who has ever achieved anything has been knocked down many times. But all of them picked themselves up and kept going, and that is what I have always tried to do.”

“You cannot protect the environment unless you empower people, you inform them, and you help them understand that these resources are their own, that they must protect them.”
