Wallace W

My father is my hero because he is always there for me and never judgmental. It seems as though my father knows how to do or how to fix everything. He is amazing. My father is just getting over prostate cancer and he has been so brave and determined to overcome this illness. I really admire him. Through everything, he has never once complained. That why my father is my hero.

Awesome words! The way one treats others determines the level of humanity in oneself. A saying goes "the world is one family for the broad minded." Let's treat everybody with love and care.

Your Great Aunt sounds like a wonderful woman, one I would love to meet. Not because of how she would treat me but because I sense she might teach me a thing or two! How lucky of you if you truly are a kindred spirit with an amazing person!

amira from egypt APRIL 11, 2007
The two mottos yours and hers are part and parcel of each other; when you live your day as if it is your last day, you will respectedly and when you treat others as so, there's no thing that causes harm

poshika from mahebourg APRIL 9, 2007
"Treat everyone you meet each day as though it were their last day on earth." If every people would have taken this into consideration, we would not be miserable.
