Whether one believes in a religion or not, and whether one believes in rebirth or not, there isn’t anyone who doesn’t appreciate kindness and compassion. Honor should indeed be given to whom it’s due for true happiness is not attained through self-gratification, but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.
