Wisdom in Action announced today the recipients of the 2014 Unsung Heroes of Compassion award—51 individuals from 18 countries who work tirelessly to ease the suffering of others, create opportunities for those less fortunate, and bring life-saving care to war-torn regions of the world. Later this month, the “unsung heroes” will be acknowledged with a blessing from the Dalai Lama at a special event I am helping to produce. I encourage you to read a bit about these individuals in the short narratives I wrote and/or edited with D’Arcy Richardson and Lindsay Green-Barber. If time is short, start with Jill Seaman, Mazen Faraj, or Budd McKenzie, just a few of the many I cannot stop thinking about. The “unsung heroes” have made their lives shining examples of goodness, lighting the way for us in places where hope must overcome hopelessness and generosity illuminates the only path to safety. I hope you, too, will find inspiration in their stories.
