No person was ever honored for what he received. Honor has been the reward for what he gave. Calvin Coolidge
Those who are merely rich and powerful don’t earn our lasting admiration. Throughout the world, the men and women we hold in the highest esteem are those who have given the most.
Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr.
Colin Powell and our nation’s Military men and women.
Susan B Anthony and Mother Theresa.
Buzz Aldrin, Neil Armstrong, John Glenn and Alan Shepard.
Winston Churchill and Nelson Mandela.
Malala Yousafzai and Aung San Suu Kyi.
They are great because they sacrificed their own personal safety to share their gifts with the world.
They are beacons that light the way generation after generation and wrest from our breasts feelings of awe. They show us what humans are capable of at our best, and we deeply respect who they are and what they’ve done.
Give, because it will earn you honor from those who’s lives you’ve touched.
Who do you honor and why?
