“Nothing brings me more happiness than trying to help the most vulnerable people in society. It is a goal and an essential part of my life – a kind of destiny. Whoever is in distress can call on me. I will come running wherever they are.” – Princess Diana
More than ten years ago, a princess died.
She was a lady, a loving mother, and a philanthropist. Many believed she was an angel sent to warm the hearts of the feeble and the needy.
She was an inspiration for the victims of poverty, the sick, the discriminated, and the homeless.
Her name was Diana, Princess of Wales. There is a long, illustrious list of princesses in England and in other parts of the world, yet none of these royal women can surpass what Princess Diana had achieved.
What was it that brought tears to people around the world after her death in 1997?
Was it her beauty? Her deeds? Or her legacy?
She left a legacy that will be remembered for a a very long time.
She was included in Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People of the 20th Century because of her charity work.
Diana used her influential status to campaign against the use of land mines that were scattered around the world.
These mines are found in many developing countries. This cause earned her the Nobel Peace Prize in 1997.
She also helped decrease the discrimination against the victims of AIDS who experience social anxiety. In fact, she was one the first high-profile celebrities to be photographed with a person infected with HIV.
As a princess, Diana was probably one of the richest, most attractive and socially powerful women in the world.
Despite these attributes, she was also a victim. Diana was often the subject nasty of rumors in the tabloid scene.
