The European Union won the Nobel Peace Prize this morning. Quite a news in the meantime of probably the most difficult period of the EU's history. Certainly unexpected for many and that is why the news caused a 'blast' on social networks. Have read through number of sarcastic comments and posts on Twitter and Facebook and once again assured that people have very short memory. 

The fact is that, peace as the major achievement of the European Union is already neglected and even forgotten. Hence, citizens of the EU take current European order as granted. Another discussion topic is how valuable Nobel Prize is especially after taking glance on the previous winners, but still, today's award reminded us about something relatively unappreciated - it has been six decades already since this unique project has been launched and which in my humble opinion brought peace and prosperity to the European continent.

Happy Nobel Prize EU! :)
