Treat people the way you would like to be treated

Recently, I attended the Man of the Year Ceremony organized by ROTARY. The individual who was being honored, was a greengrocer who donates fruit and vegetables every single week to consumers in the mental health system. Every Friday afternoon, a member of Rotary drives to the grocery store where he helps the greengrocer and his son pile fruit and vegetables into his hatchbacck which he then transports to the mental health rehabilitation center.

It was so heartwarming to meet people who don’t think twice about donating to the community with open hearts. One of the mental health consumers present, sang, and another told us proudly, how he has reached the stage of finding work on the open market; a great achievement indeed.

Live with no regrets

Treat people the way you want to be treated

Work like you don’t need the money

Love like  you’ve never been hurt\

Dance like you do when there is nobody watching you.
