The Nobel Peace Prize winner of 1979, Mother Teresa, was an
inspiration to the world for her long list of good deeds and caring
for humanity where no one else would ever wander. She created a
massive ripple effect that left the world in a much better place then
when she got there.
When Mother Teresa arrived in India to teach, she instantly had a life
awakening experience as she saw the immense poverty in Calcutta. This
led her to start a new mission that was primarily focused on looking
after those people who nobody else was able to look after.
Mother Teresa and a group of nuns would devote themselves
wholeheartedly and survived on very little income and food. In fact,
they would often need to beg for funds.
Although she faced much controversy throughout her life, she continued
to press forward and leave the negativity behind. She was a woman with
a strong mission. When she opened her home for the dying, which was to
allow people to die with dignity, people bashed her for a lack of
medical care. However, many protected her concept, and defended her
saying that it gave the neglected a sense of knowing that someone
Although she was extremely religious in her faith, she never pushed to
convert anyone and even gave those who were dying in her home, the
religious rites they needed for their faith.
During the last few decades of her life, Mother Teresa endured many
hardships regarding her own personal health. However she was too
driven that nothing could deter her from fulfilling her course of
serving the needy. Prior to her death, she met with the ever noble,
Princess Diana in New York. Coincidentally they died within a week
from one another.
THE INSPIRING OUTCOME:
Upon laying the pillars of change and creating a powerful message of
helping humanity, Mother Teresa has sparked a ripple effect of good.
As of 2013, there are nearly 700 missions in over 130 countries which
now include orphanages and hospices. The Noble Peace Prize winner had
one goal; to help people the best way she could, and the many, many
kind deeds she did for the planet has left a giant positive footprint.
Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with
great love. Mother Teresa
