Once upon a time the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded for the simple act of taking a picture, a picture of a black man and a white woman in love. The photo circled the globe charming several million pairs of eyes in less than a week. It left the Internet and appeared on billboards, in magazines, on the TV news. They were just a couple in love, yet somehow their photo inspired hands all over the world to reach out and encounter the warmth of other searching hands. Before long it was the most talked about image on the planet. Some called it the knockout blow to intolerance and hatred. Even the most hardened mentality found itself disarmed by the message of love. The most remarkable occurrence was how the Ku Klux Klan spontaneously disbanded, turning its sheets into diapers for the coming baby boom.

Nice dream. I'd vote for it. Sadly, the Nobel Commission revoked my golden key so I can't nominate it. Oh well, good luck anyway!
