On February, 23 in Russia and in some parts of Ukraine was celebrated Defender of the Fatherland Day, which is also called the Day of the Real Men! Actually, this holiday sorted my thoughts in such a way that this post appeared. I want to talk about one worthy representative of the real men category being full of enthusiasm for some human actions. At first, I promise to tell a fun history, but only on condition that no one will laugh!
OK, let assume that we’ve agreed! One morning, still lying in the warm bed, I was very surprised, realizing what I dreamed about. But the dreams themselves are a rare pleasure in my case. So my dream was clear and pleasant, I dreamed about an island, wooden deck chairs with white pillows under palm trees, also nice people, hot sun, blue ocean and.. and Paul, damn, Walker. I was very surprised at a fact of his presence in my dream because I am neither a fan of him nor a fan of the Fast and the Furious film. However, I decided to find some news about this actor. My surprise grew even more by the fact that on the day when my interest appeared was Paul Walker’s charity formation the second anniversary. Of course I couldn’t pass by this story!
This post was conceived as serious and important, despite rather hilarious intro, because in my country the news about charity spread badly, but at the same time we have too much information about the luxurious life. And I want to tell you that life here for the average person, who wasn’t born with a golden spoon in the mouth, isn’t a sugar, so very few people are concerned about the troubles beyond Ukraine.
But people continue to amaze me. So, I was amazed that a man with some financial possibility isn’t just talking about the good deeds but he performs them. I know now that the main purpose of a small team (REACH OUT Worldwide) is to be on the scene as soon as possible and to help.
This team has managed to help after such disasters as tsunami in Indonesia, earthquakes in Haiti and Chile, and also tornado in Alabama. Impressive service record, isn’t it? By the way, I’m sure they were on the scene, when I just read the news, rubbing my eyes.
If it was a speech aloud then I could stop for a while so that everyone would have possibility to applaud.
I’m not a doctor or a nurse, I have no idea what to do in emergencies and I don’t know how to provide first aid. But I’m not a coward! I’m not confused by the poor conditions or a lack of makeup on my face, and to help for those who are in need has never been a stupid pastime for me. Probably somewhere I made a wrong turn in the path of my life. Now I hope to assist at least by a word, but what can happen tomorrow or the day after… Who knows?
P.S. I really hope that the planets will line up correctly or the heavens will be gracious, and my words will be a link between those who want and those who are able to help and those who need help.
