The Goodness Of Oprah Winfrey

Jan 20, 2008
Who would ever have thought that a slightly overweight woman journalist that also happened to be black would rise to the successful heights that Oprah Winfrey has? If you are one of the millions who watch her show regularly then you know that it should be no surprise at all.

Despite what many of those closed minded people in the world might think, being a woman and also being a minority in this country has nothing to do with ones ability to rise as far as they want to.

Oprah Winfrey has proven to millions that she is one of the most intelligent and gifted people on our planet. If there was ever a perfect example that gender and race has no bearing on one's abilities, then Oprah is it.

Not only has she ascended from the meanest sorts of poverty and abuse during her childhood, but she has struggled her way through school and the ranks of the journalism world to become recognized for her talk show alone, which through satellite are aired all over the world, but she has built an empire from that same talk show that she has hosted for these many years. Yet she has remained one of the most charitable and most loved celebrities that we have ever had.

The appeal that Oprah has is that she really is still one of us even though she is probably wealthy beyond words. She has never lost the ability to sit down and talk with everyday people about their many difficulties and have as much genuine concern as with they were her own difficulties.

Over the past several years, she has gone to great lengths that others would never have done to help track down the low life predators that prey on our innocent children.

She realizes the extreme importance of finding as many of these criminals as we can and putting them where they belong, out of our society and away from our children. It is about time that someone started speaking out for the children that are affected by these tragic molestations and deaths.

The girl's school that she has recently opened in Africa is just like something that she would do. It has provided a wonderful opportunity for these girls that they could never have even dreamed of.

It may very well help to reshape the future of that entire region by allowing intelligent young women who would have been overlooked otherwise, to become great additions to the society of the world and begin a new chain of education and a better way of life for them and their offspring as well.

So Oprah, wherever you are, those of us who admire you so greatly, salute you. It is just such a shame that there is not many more in the world just like you.
