U.S. President Barack Obama has accepted the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize with the acknowledgment that he is only at the beginning of his “labors on the world stage.”

At the awards ceremony Thursday in Oslo, Norway, Obama said his “accomplishments are slight” compared to other Nobel laureates such as Martin Luther King Jr. and Nelson Mandela. He said activists who have been “jailed and beaten in the pursuit of justice” or serve as humanitarians around the world are far more deserving of the honor. Source: VOA
