If there’s one thing that I admire in individuals and groups it is commitment.

I’m impressed by those who stay the course to pursue their dreams – whatever those may be.

I love when individuals come together, inspired by a cause, driven by a need and bring about change.

I admire those who fight against injustice – bearing the burden of a world that sometimes appears so callous and unfeeling. Never counting the cost to themselves.

I am in awe of doctors, lawyers, aid workers, rescue workers NGO workers who give of their time to work in far-off, war-torn areas of the world. Even if they are compensated, the personal price they pay is huge.

I have deep respect for primary caregivers who often have no one to relieve them and stay on looking after the other out of love and commitment. In my opinion, the hardest ones to look after are those suffering from Alzheimer’s and other forms of mental illnesses.

When I watch parents of mentally challenged children, my heart is moved by their patience and fortitude. Even more when those children grow into adults and the parents age. I wonder where they draw their strength from.

Then there are those fighting handicaps with courage and grace who inspire me with their spirit.

The thoughtful people, those who practice random acts of kindness, those who fight their bullies by turning the situation around –  win my respect too.

These to me are the great people, doing great things to make our world a better place.

Great things are done by a series of small things brought together. – Vincent Van Gogh
