Miami-Dade and Coral Gables: Our Awards Society
September 5, 2010 1 Comment
If all of the people and organizations that receive awards and recognition of some sort every year, this would be a society populated by philanthropists, unselfish leaders, small and large business dynamos, moral and ethical politicians, alleviators of poverty, hunger and injustice. In short, we would have an amazing place of progress and achievement.
I am one who is astonished by the proliferation of awards, prizes and decorations given out by nonprofits, community organizations and societies based more on wealth and special connections and politics than achievements and real contributions. Such awards should be given their proper weight by us all. (It is not worth mentioning any particular award to not offend those few who deserved their recognition for good social and community works.)
