By Dina El Shammaa, Staff Reporter
Abu Dhabi: The winners of the Abu Dhabi Awards 2007 will be honoured in mid-December.
General Shaikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, will present an award to the ten winners at the Emirates Palace by mid-December.
The awards will mainly go to the top ten nominees recognized by residents and citizens for their humanitarian acts and contributions to the society.
Is this what we need to be good citizens?Some said why not the means justify the ends.
Others said it takes away from doing good to do good.
But is the point not simply that we are losing sight of the fact that we are a community and need to think more about each other?
Maybe we need to have more of these schemes?
Imagine the possibility!
