Healing Hands Award
Healing Hands Award The Healing Hands Award is a recognition of unique actions by individuals to promote the concept of healing, grace, comfort and inspiration to those whom have been struck by anything from natural and man-made disaster to responding to the needs of a neighbor, friend or complete stranger or of motivating others to greater achievement. So many times there are those who quickly and readily point out a deficiency or a problem and then have mere 'lip service' as a remedy or a response. We are all to familiar with those who want to be a 'Monday Morning Quarterback', but the Healing Hands Award is all about being involved.
Through their hands, hard work and dedication the recipient of the Healing Hands Award has made life better and just as importantly, has set an example to follow for all to emulate. Such actions easily come to mind in the persons of the first people to receive the Healing Hands Award in 2002, President George W. Bush and New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani. Without question, two leaders who comforted our country's largest city and an entire nation during the still shocking attacks on New York City and Washington, DC on the morning of September 11, 2001. Other notable recipients of this esteemed Award have been Mobile Mayor Michael C. Dow in 2005, WW2 hero and Bataan Death March survivor Major Bert Bank in 2007, Florida State University's inspirational Coach Bobby Bowden in 2008 and founder of Navy Seal Team '6', Richard "Dick" Marcinko, in 2011.
