To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a little better; whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is the meaning of success. - Ralph Waldo Emerson said those words. Truly, these caring people have had an enormously positive effect on our planet, and we are indebted to them.
