Was He a Savior?

Do you know who Norman Borlaug was?

Last fall he died at the age of 95, a scientist who was called "the father of thegreen revolution. ” He earned that recognition by developing high-yield disease-resistant crops, which doubled the world food production and saved a billions lives.

A billions lives! For that, he received the Nobel Prize.

But almost no one knows who he is. One the other hand, Britney Spears, an 'entertainer" who can’t act or sing, is known all over the world for her inability to manage her personal and professional life.

Fair? No. Strange? Yes.
