Wisdoms and Thoughts


A person's ''GOOD CHARACTER'' denotes a combination of acquired knowledge, wisdom and resultant behavior; a grasp of rational reality; humility, fortitude and courage...wrapped within an inquisitive and distinctive personality.

By contrast ''a character''is merely a person with an instinct for eccentric self-drama that can be amusing, disturbing or disrupting... depending on the circumstances. --wj

GMT is a Humanist Organization. GMT values good character. GMT believes in integrity, honesty, respect for oneself, respect for others, decency, dignity, responsibility, fairness, caring and service to others. GMT believes in providing an "Education for Life" to the whole person and for all people. Education erases ignorance and, therefore, diminishes myth, mistreatment and a myopic life...and eventually will diminish injustice, poverty and poor health. We will be both giving and receiving education on GMT trips in pursuing our quest for better health.--wj

"Never underestimate the ability of a small group of committed individuals to change the world. Indeed, they are the only ones who ever have." – Margaret Mead...

The people who make the most cumulative differences in one's life are not the
ones with the most credentials, the most money, the most prestige or the most awards. They are the ones that care. At least, that is how it has been for me.--wj

"You can get everything in life you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want." - Zig Ziglar

..."A brand is a person's gut feeling about a product, service, or company. It's not what you (the company) say it is, it's what THEY say it is."—sj
GMT is what YOU say it is.

One of the patient's that I will never forget were two little girls of the ages 5 and 6, who portrayed symptoms of malnutrition, which I later learned that it was due to the lack of parental/guardian supervision. Apart from their poor health conditions, they also lived in poor living conditions, where both of them had to sleep in the floor and one of them did not own a pair of shoes. After, diagnosing the patients and consulting with each member from my group, we thought that the best GMT can do is to provide both of them with sufficient vitamins, iron tablets, and parasite treatment for at least 2 months. Even then, we thought that giving the little girls these medications was very little in our dispense. This was one of the cases that definitely marked my perspective about the patient's healthcare in third world countries and how the poverty in Panama is incomparable to first world poverty.- Angela, Junior, Hunter College
