August 19, 2012 - World Humanitarian Day "I Was Here"

"Every year on August 19th, World Humanitarian Day recognizes those who face danger and adversity to help others. August 19th is the anniversary of the 2003 bombing of the United Nations headquarters in Baghdad, Iraq, which killed 22 people"

 I am looking forward to the day when the work of so many amazing people will become the norm. It will not diminish in any way their efforts but such happening would lift us all and our actions would truly make this world a better place. 

 Most people who dedicate their lives,resources, energy and love to helping others do so without public acclaim. Some use their fame to promote and support.
All deserve our respect and all need for us to step up and do our little bit.

"To give someone a piece of your heart is worth more than all the wealth in the world"
Michael Jackson

Michael's artistic talent and achievements in the fields of music and entertainment can only be matched if not surpassed by his humanitarian work. His dedication to make the world a better place has been ridiculed at times but brought him and all those he helped joy.

“In a world filled with hate, we must still dare to hope. In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort. In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream. And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe.”
Michael Jackson
