Anuradha Koirala

We all have heroes that we look up to. Very often there are many unsung heroes who don't think of themselves as heroes. When I saw this video of Anuradha Koirala on the internet, I immediately saw the face of an unassuming and humble person. There was nothing to suggest she was basking in the limelight, or proud to be presented with the CNN Hero Award. Among the audience, I could see many teary faces of people who were truly touched by what they heard about her work. From her on-stage speech, one could tell that she feels very deeply for the victims of human trafficking in her country.

If you want to see how the demeanor of Christ might look like, take a look at the video of Anuradha Koirala at  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gKzDtYJR2b4. It is the facial expression of one who has sacrificial love for mankind, and who has worked unceasingly to bring happiness to other people. It is the face of one who considers herself totally insignificant in comparison to the plight of others.
