Some Never Remember The Real Heroes: Norman Borlaug 1914-2009

Some are remembered for their music, some are remembered by their leadership, and some are even remembered for their skill on a basketball court or baseball diamond. But chances are good that not too many people will remember Norman Borlaug. Who is Norman Borlaug or more important what did Norman Borlaug do with his life?

Norman Borlaug who was born in Iowa grew up not to farm but to save the lives of 2,000,000,000 (two billion people) at the very least. Receiving the Noble Peace Prize in 1970 for the creation of the high yielding seed which is redundant to heat and cold and that can be grown just about anywhere has given life to more people then Borlaug himself could even imagine.

I find it sad that this man has not been given any
credit for the movement of peace.
So I just want to say here on my little
blog that I shall remember Norman Borlaug

As Adlai Stevenson once said “a hungry man is not a free man”
