Most definitely! Thanks for posting this.
With so much bad news you hear everyday, the power of love that transforms the world, often slips by quietly unnoticed. Thank you for the wonderful reminder and the inspiration.

Hey, thanks for posting this, Heartsong. I didn't know they had picked a hero. I voted awhile back for Aki Ra. It was truly a difficult vote. I almost voted for the winner, but Aki caught my eye for some reason. He gets rid of land mines he set himself years ago when he was around 10. Below comes from CNN: Cambodian man clears land mines he set decades ago - CNN.com

Aki Ra, a Cambodian native who does not recall his birth year, was a child soldier during the communist Khmer Rouge regime, a genocidal crusade responsible for the deaths of an estimated 1.5 million Cambodians during the 1970s. He was raised by the army after being separated from his family during the internal conflict.

Around age 10, Aki Ra estimates, he was given a rifle that measured his own height. Soon after, he was taught to lay land mines.

For three years, Aki Ra worked as a mine layer for the Khmer Rouge. He then did the same job for the Vietnamese army that overthrew his village.
