Didier Drogba is a soccer player who never had trouble helping his team win games. But he wanted more than that. Didier comes from a small country called the Ivory Coast in Africa, and they were a little war-torn. At a World Cup game however, Didier urged the respective parties to come to a truce and to be more reasonable in their actions. In a surprising turn of events, people actually listened. No wonder why this guy is a hero in his homeland.
Some of the local rebels.
Ze French in ze Countri!
He begged them to cease fire.
A hero in his land.
But still finds time to score goals.
The Flame of Peace signalling the new Truce.
It’s wedged in a neat spot.
The juxtaposition is strong with this one.
And they were very much needed.
Peace Ceremony, 2007

Perhaps the Detroit Lions could take a lesson.
