Don-Christopher Barnes - Honoring a Courageous Boy
Touched by the boy's courageous and compassionate act, Master also bestowed on him the Shining World Hero Award. The Award presentation was held in a Kingston hotel on March 8, Golden Year 5 (2008) by initiates from the Florida Center. After a letter from Master was read, Don came up in the Hero T-shirt he had received to accept a framed letter from Master, a crystalline Award plague, a check for US$500 and a gift bag full of Master's wonderful books. To show his deep appreciation and gratitude, Don then read a personally written letter to Master in front of the guests, who were deeply impressed by Don's intelligence and calm, joyful demeanor.
While in Jamaica the initiates took the opportunity to distribute SOS global-warming flyers to the Award ceremony guests, many of whom said they would share the information with their friends, relatives and co-workers. It was indeed a rewarding experience for the Florida initiates to honor young Don-Christopher Barnes for his heroic deed.
