Doing the unexpected ...

For Halloween a lot of people dress up to scare other people, to be somebody else for a moment or to just do/be the unexpected. Similar to Greta Thunberg yesterday, when she rejected the  environmental prize from the Nordic Council and everybody was surprised,  https://eu.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2019/10/30/greta-thunberg-declines-nordic-council-environmental-prize-money/4095078002/. She could have easily donated the 46,000€ to plant some trees, but saying NO was much more effective to bring her message across.

Luckily she did not get the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize, what was under discussion. Interesting enough that there is still no new category added by the Nobel Foundation for environmental protection, as this is not a new topic anymore.  https://www.nobelprize.org/prizes/facts/nobel-prize-facts/ 

Halloween is not only about putting on a costume, but it's about finding the imagination and costume within ourselves. -- Elvis Duran, American - Entertainer Born: August 5, 1964,  https://bijog.com/biography/elvis-duran
