There are countless examples of people who have been altruistic throughout human history. Think of some acquaintances. Mother Teresa of Calcutta, Princess Diana
Diana, Princess of Wales (Diana Frances, born Spencer; Sandringham, July 1, 1961 - Paris, August 31, 1997) was Charles' first wife, Prince of Wales, eldest son and apparent heir to Queen Elizabeth II. Their two sons, Princes William and Harry, are second and third in line to the thrones of the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and 12 other Commonwealth countries respectively.
From her engagement to the Prince of Wales in 1981 to her tragic death in a car accident in 1997, Lady Di was the most famous woman in the world and one of the most striking figures of the 20th century: an icon of fashion, an ideal of feminine beauty and elegance, admired for dedication to charity and humanitarian causes, especially for her involvement in the fight against AIDS and in the international campaign against landmines.
In April 1987, the Princess of Wales became the first major celebrity to be photographed touching a person infected with the HIV virus. His contribution to changing public opinion regarding AIDS patients was raised in 2001 by American President Bill Clinton, when he said:
In 1987, when many believed that AIDS could be contracted through touch, Princess Diana sat on a bed where an AIDS patient lay and held her hand. She showed the world that people with AIDS did not deserve isolation, but compassion. It helped to change the world's opinion, it helped people with AIDS, and it also helped to save people at risk
