South Korean President follows the spirit of Jesus the Lord and of Gandhiji

A story on CNN has just announced that South Korea´s president is to to donate the bulk of his wealth (some $26 million)to set up a youth scholarship program

Will politicians in Third World countries be inspired to follow this example?

I greatly doubt it.

But how about making such donation compulsory for all those who are elected to the top political offices? That would sort out those who genuinely want to serve their people from those who are merely power hungry.

Anyway, I want to salute President Lee Myung-Bak, and wish him many years of not merely serving his people, but leading them to greatness. Sphere: Related Content
