Today is very significant to many people for many reasons. To an estimate 2.5 million Muslims who are in Mecca to perform 'hajj' one of five pillars of Islam, its the day of Arafah, the peak of all the rituals they are performing. And to Americans from all walk of life its the Thanksgiving 2009, a day set aside to feast and be thankful for all the blessings God have bestowed on us, as Americans and also a day to kick off the holiday season.. but one event that dominates our TV sets tonight is 'CNN Hero of the Year' awards' live telecast. I think it is important that somebody says thank you to those wonderful people from all walks of lives across the world who are making the world a better place to live. They help change lives, dreams realized and hopes restored, not because they will be paid but because someone have to do it. to some of them the only thing that get them going is the smile they put other people's faces, the love they spread and the positive options they bring to young people across the world.
My dear friends, all this Heroes need our support, lets support them with what we can, lets volunteer, lets donate our time ,talent and all we can. We are all heroes one way or he other.. and together we can make our world a much better place for the future generations to come, my dear friend you are a hero too.
Quote of the day:
' And then a hero comes along With the strength to carry on And you cast your fears aside And you know you can survive So when you feel like hope is gone Look inside you and be strong And you'll finally see the truth That a hero lies in you ' ~Mariah Carey~
