Transcript of Candidate for Discipleship: Betty Williams

A Worthy Candidate of Discipleship
in the Twenty First Century... Betty Williams Justice Passionate Leader Non-Violence "Peace begins with me. And I don’t think any human being is completely non-violent and especially not me, because I get very violent thoughts at times when I see children being hurt. But I have to work on myself, something second to second, minute to minute, hour by hour, day by day, to transform the anger that I feel into something positive that would be taken out and used to help and not to destroy. And part of this question says peace at home. If I have no peace in my own home, then I have no right to be here, and be a hypocrite, and talk to you about peace. It begins in my home, and with me."
-Betty Williams Betty Williams has created a whole different perspective on how we confront the injustices, merciless acts in today's society towards children and human kind. Born in Belfast, Northern Ireland (1943)
Age 33, witness tradgic death of family during the Troubles in Northern Ireland
Mairead Corrigan Maguire, Betty Williams, and a journalist co-founded "Community for Peace People" to raise awareness for the need for peace in the community
Betty obtained 6 000 signatures within 2 days towards promoting peace
Within one week, Betty arranged a protest march which brought 35 000 people
This began her peace activist career
Nobel Peace Prize 1976 "You can’t work for peace unless you work for justice, and you can’t work for justice unless you work for peace. They are twins. So, you can’t achieve peace without having justice in your heart, and compassion in your heart. They go together."
-Betty Williams

Achievements and accomplishments:

President of 'World Center of Compassion for Children'
Nobel Peace prize winner in 1976
Awarded 'People Peace Prize of Norway' in 1976
'Eleanor Roosevelt Award' in 1984
'Together for Peace Foundation Peace Building' award
Member of 'Global Vision for Peace' organization "Compassion is more important than intellect in calling forth the love that the work of peace needs, and intuition can often be a far more powerful searchlight than cold reason."
-Betty Williams "She believed that, it's the duty of every human being to protect human life, and failing this duty, we lose our right to life and joy."
-www.famouspeople.com So, as you can see, Betty Williams is a worthy candidate for discipleship as she uses her leadership skills to establish a peaceful society for others. She truly believes in justice and peace for all of mankind. Like Jesus taught us, we are not to be bystanders, but to act on what is morally right and show his love to all. It is obvious that Betty Williams deserves to be at the right hand of Jesus as a disciple. Works Cited
