* Brother Teresa ?

I am Nobody.

There is a Mother Teresa quality to Rocky's story "Blood Brother: Rocky returns to India" on PBS's Independent Lens: An unpaid young  Wsetern white man serves AIDS children in their orphanage in India.

Truly serves.

Yet there is not a word about religion. 

Does that absence make Rocky's selflessness any less significant?

I see him as a Secular Saint after watching this moving two hour documentary.

Doctors  questioned Rocky's credentials (father? nurse? social worker?) after he stayed five days in the hospital to minister to one of his children's'  AIDS  sores during an immune system collapse.

Rocky answered, "I am nobody."

Someone needs to start a Rocky Fund and send money to his orphanage for supplies and services to AIDS children.
