No one told Lien Chan he was winning a prize

Lien Chan didn’t show up to accept the Confucius Peace Prize.

The first ever Confucius Peace Prize was awarded to former Taiwanese Vice President Lien Chan, who worked for closer ties between Taiwan and the People’s Republic of China. But Tien wasn’t in attendance, largely because no one from the committee had bothered to inform him about it. Instead, the award was given to a young girl described as an “angel of peace.”
