TRIBUTE TO A HUMANITARIAN
If you see a world torn by famine and war and feel in some way responsible
you know the meaning of LOVE.
If you see people with little or no hope and believe their survival is somehow linked to your own
you know the meaning of BROTHERHOOD.
If you feel those of us who have been blessed with abundance should share with those less fortunate
you know the meaning of CHARITY.
If you can travel to the end of the world to bring hope to those who would otherwise never know it
you know the meaning of COURAGE.
And if you can see a smile in the faces of those who should have no reason to smile
you know that there is still TIME.
