My hero's name is Prem. He has created the Prem Rawat Foundation to show solidarity with people in need and suffering from lack of water, food or natural disasters. At the same time he spreads good values and appreciation for life by traveling around the world to deliver very inspiring talks. That's how I came to know Prem. I met him in 1973 when he was just 15. At such a young age he had already left India to spread his teachings about peace: how real peace has to start inside the individual if we want to see it established firmly in any society as societies are made up of individuals.
Prem still continues doing this amazing job, traveling around the world and reminding people of what they already know. Everybody in this world wants to feel good and at peace. And when they are, caring about others is automatic and not part of a set of rules or codes.
I have the honor of being a witness to the great job Mr. Rawat continues to do. I also wanted to congratulate this fantastic Foundation for also reminding people of the simple facts of life we forget constantly: Every moment in this life is precious.
