The Swedish chemist Alfred Nobel devoted himself for scientific researches. He was busy researching about the atom and the explosions. He found enjoyment in these discoveries. His brother died. The papers falsely stated his name in the obituary instead of his brother’s. He thus found a chance to see what people say about him and his researches and discoveries. Therefore, he did not correct the mistake made by the paper.
Many articles were written. The title of most of these articles was “Nobel the Inventor of Destruction”. Nobel was affected by the articles. He moved from using the atom in wars to using it for peace and the edification of society in many fields. He decided to give a universal prize to him who does the best work for the edification of mankind. The Nobel Prize was thus made.
Let me O Lord use my talents for the edification of society.
Let me O Lord love every man
And always work for achieving peace.
O Prince of Peace, may I be an icon of You.
