This coming Sunday the topic of the week is...
Last week Jose Antonio Reyes, popular Spanish football player, killed himself in a car accident while driving his luxury Mercedes at 237 km/hour. His 23 years old cousin was killed too and a third passenger (another cousin) survived the crash but he is in serious conditions. The Spanish Football Federation has already announced Reyes will be given an honor medal for his career. Some voices have already criticized it, including Santiago Cañizares (another popular Spanish football player). A similar situation happened in 2009 when Obama received the Nobel Peace prize for his "extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between people". Some people strongly criticized it. Does Reyes or Obama deserve glory or punishment? Who are the true heroes in today´s society? what do they have in common? Is there a celebrity you think deserves a prize but has not received yet?
