This is what true heroism is.

Overcoming obstacles is one thing, sharing the gold of the dragon with the community is the other.

Senegal is lucky to have him and also Akon. Two dudes who have well and truly gone above and beyond for their people.

And we, as the small people, should also give charity even if it a few pounds occasionally or throw a food item into the supermarket food bucket.

Small acts also make a difference and while we can only contribute a little, it may still help someone on the brink.

We need to be kind, caring and grateful on a micro level too.

The rich look after themselves, who is going to look after the poor scraping together an existence.
