There are pictures at the link but I had to take the article apart so I could format for here.
I don't care what anyone says George is a very special person and I love him for the person first then the film maker.
TOP 100 THE MOST INFLUENTIAL PEOPLE IN ARMED VIOLENCE REDUCTION
By Henry Dodd on 28 Jun 2013

George Clooney is actor and film maker who has been active in humanitarian projects throughout the world. Clooney is a strategic advisor to the “Not on Our Watch Campaign” which aims to focus global attention on the prevention of mass atrocities and is one of the founders of the Satellite Sentinel Project. The Sentinel Project uses satellite technology as an early warning system for potential violence worldwide and promotes a fast reaction on human rights and human security concerns. Clooney is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and a winner of The Peace Summit Award from the Nobel
Peace Prize Laureates.

Editorial: Why a list of the 100 most influential people in armed violence reduction is of use
By Iain Overton on 28 Jun 2013
Umberto Eco, the Italian maverick, once commented that we write lists because we don’t want to die.
In the case of AOAV’s list of the 100 most influential people in armed violence reduction, I guess you could say we wrote this list because we don’t want other people to die.

Lists are a necessary evil in the modern world.  We have Bucket lists, Hot or Not lists, Rich lists and Award lists.  They tell us who’s in, and who’s out, who’s on the up and down, who we should follow and who follows us.

Our list of the 100 most influential in reducing violence bows to the same conceits, to some degree.  We have our Jolie and our Clooney.  We have our rich and our powerful.  We have our headliners and opinion formers.

But there is a utility to our list.  The people on it are truly influential – they have proven track records of mobilizing change, reforming wrongs and reducing the impact of armed conflict.

Our list not only pays testimony to their efforts but, we hope, acts as a way in which these influencers can find out about others in their field.  A sort of ‘armed violence reduction blind date’ list, if you will.  Perhaps connections could be made or acquaintances re-formed.  We will let you know if anyone gets hitched because of us.

And for those who don’t make the list but sit, teeth gnashing, wondering why – despite their efforts – they remain unrecognized, unloved and unlisted: please don’t fret.  I’m not on the list, and I think I should be.

Please use this list liberally.  Follow those named on Twitter.  Send it to journalists and lobbyists.  Send us feedback if we have missed someone who you think rocks the world.  Retweet it, Facebook it and email it.
Armed violence can be reduced.  Communication and sharing is one way to do that.  Please help us in our mission.
Top 100:
By Henry Dodd on 28 Jun 2013
In 2011, at least 526,000 people died violent deaths around the world.  Over three-quarters of these occurred in non-conflict settings. A wide range of people around the globe are working to change this depressing reality. But who are these men and women who have dedicated their lives to making the world a safer place? Members of AOAV staff have come together to select 100 people who are outstanding examples of those trying to change the world for the better.

There were a few that I expected but when you come down to it 100 people in the whole world we're talking about. John is a dedicate activist and works tirelessly. George still might be able to get more done because he is mor influential.

They expect them to be able to get more accomplished because of the people that they can get to help. That's kind of how I understood it anyway. Apparently George also has the smarts if he is a consultant on these matters. He is in some heavy weight company, God Bless.

I was a bit worried he might have gone to Darfur, I know President Obama is in Africa right now but I don't think he is going that far north anyway. I would guess it would be way too much security it they both were there at the same time. I just was thinking it because that's when they became friends over Darfur when PBO was still a senator. I constantly worry about George going there.

Trust me there is not rush, Asthma in a child comes first always. It was just an after thought.
