I had dinner with my parents tonight, and while we ate and talked about how some people are inherently good, sometimes at great expense, the name of a national hero came up.

It occurred to me that, the same way I knew so little about other countries' national days, I know little about people from other countries who did amazing things. So, I thought it would be an interesting thing to share here, get to know a little bit more about people you might admire and respect and your culture, and a way to remind ourselves that yes, there is extraordinary kindness in mankind.
