Celebrate the best of humanity.
 

You are my hero if…

by Cheikh Darou Seck,
English Teacher from Dakar, Senegal

If you know what honour means
And the significance of dignity
If pride and honesty are valuable to you
Then you are my hero

If you can give with no interest in mind
Help the needy regardless of the skin colour
Fight the battle of the patient fighter
Then you are my hero

If you can be the voice of the voiceless
Fighting for the triumph of truth and,
The prevalence of good over evil,
Then you are my hero

If you were a fireman, now under the towers’ ruins,
But then rushing in,
When everybody were running out
Then you are my hero

If you can be awake for the others’ safety
While everybody else is sound asleep
Standing for the forces of life to prevail
Then you are my hero

If you are an unknown educator
In a far away forgotten corner
Giving to some kids the best in you
Then you are my hero

If you can show a little more courage
Bearing the pain a little longer
When the concern is about survival
Then you are my hero

If you can hear the call of motherhood,
Giving up your own self
For the self of you flesh
Then you are my hero

If you take time to ease minds
If you take time to restore hope
If you take time to share and understand
If you take time to look around you

Wherever you may be
Whatever your nationality
You are my hero
