Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 1 to 500
~ Idea 1307 ~    7 February 1998

While I was autographing My Testament to the United Nations  for the new Ambassador of Costa Rica to the UN, Mr. Bernd Niehaus, Barbara proposed that a yearly prize be given to the most loyal and active servant of the world and of the United Nations.  In her view, I should be the first to receive it in the year 2000.

Volume II Chapter 4 - Of Positive Living
This diplomat with whom I am working is already finished:  his eyes are sad, his cheeks are sagging, his color is yellow, his shoulders are collapsed, his walk is sluggish, his hair is sickish, he smokes incessantly and talks pessimistically.  I am sure he also drinks. 

He is no longer a human being who really wants to live.  The nerve of life has abandoned him.  His whole being has said good-bye to the world.  What a pity! 

Will I be able to help him, to awaken him?  I must try.

"None of us has gotten where we are solely by pulling ourselves up from our own bootstraps. We got here because somebody bent down and helped us." -- Thurgood Marshall

Idea of the week.

"I wanted my 5 yr old son and 18 month old twins to truely understand what the act of giving was all about, especially at Christmas time. So, I made a list of people that were less likely to recieve gifts or love and let my son chose who we could give gifts to.

He chose homeless people.

We purchased some large inexpensive gift bags and filled them with canned goods, warm socks, toothbrushes, bars of soap, candy bars, and many other surprises. The best surprise was when my son came in with his piggy bank and said they could have his money. We filled several plastic bags with the coins and I slipped in a few dollar bills and added them to the gift bags. We then put all the gift bags in the trunk of the car.

A few days later, we saw a homeless person pushing a cart. We pulled over and we gave the bag to the man.

He started to cry when we wished him Merry Christmas. I have never forgotten the look of gratitude on his face and neither has my son. We have now done this for three years at my son's request." -- Anon
