I just cried my eyes out watching this video of the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony. The winner, Liu Xiaobo isn’t there to collect the award, since he has been incarcerated in China for 11 years as a political prisoner. His wife can’t collect the award either, since she has been placed under house arrest. I’m really glad the Nobel committee had the guts to go ahead with the ceremony instead of cancelling it, so that the world can see that empty chair. Read more about Liu Xiaobo’s work here.
