17-year-old Meghan Vogel was in last place in the 3,200-meter run when she caught up to competitor Arden McMath, whose body was giving out. Instead of running past her to avoid the last-place finish, Vogel put McMath's arm around her shoulders, carried her 30 meters, and then pushed her over the finish line before crossing it. ♥K♥

Chiune Sugihara. This man saved 6000 Jews. He was a Japanese diplomat in Lithuania. When the Nazis began rounding up Jews, Sugihara risked his life to start issuing unlawful travel visas to Jews. He hand-wrote them 18 hrs a day. The day his consulate closed and he had to evacuate, witnesses claim he was STILL writing visas and throwing from the train as he pulled away. He saved 6000 lives. The world didn't know what he'd done until Israel honored him in 1985, the year before he died.

The Dalai Lama travels the world to promote human values and religious understanding. He has won the Nobel Peach Prize, a U.S. Congressional Gold Medal and over 100 other awards, honorary doctorates, and honors. He’s also authored over 70 books. It’s fair to say that he’s busier than most of us. Even though he’s visiting dignitaries and foreign leaders most of the time, he still maintains an office in India, the country that took him in as a refugee half a century ago.
