Congratulations to the distinguished recipients of the Golden Rule @ the Northern Kentucky University today. From L to R – Monte L (Von) Rovekamp, Dr. James Marocco, Ntshengedzeni Alfred Nevhutanda, Zakia D L. McKinny, Bob Rogers, and Walter Hallam. Among these 6 are well a known philanthropist, member of the presidential cabinet of South Africa, an advocate for homeless women and reestablishing them in careers, and pastors with multiple campuses around the world helping people on all levels. An amazing group of individuals deserving this honor.
The Golden Rule Initiative is an established World Peace Policy backed by the United Nations in New York and the African Union. The Golden Rule Initiative is recognized in over 130 countries and continues to grow as other Nations participate in Human Rights Development and Peace. The Golden Rule International is affiliated with the Interfaith Peace-Building Initiative Organization at the Department of Public Information of the United Nations and African Union and is a member of the United Religious Initiative with special Consultative Status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations.
Purpose of these awards are twofold: to spotlight the achievement of one exercising the Golden Rule ethic in their relationships and to encourage participation by others in producing a culture of honor.
They share this award with presidents, first ladies, global leaders, economic leaders and innovators, but you also share it with the person who supplies soup to the homeless, provides support for the ill, and one who inconveniences themselves for the betterment of another.
The mission is simple. The golden rule as the guiding ethic of life and lens through which every decision is filtered to create a culture of honor where human potential can flourish.
