So the next person on the list of people who have contributed to society is…….Friedrich William Gustav Bruhn………Mr. Bruhn invented the modern taximeter…….By inventing the taximeter…Mr. Bruhn gave way and paved a way for many immigrants to make a living to feed their families and contribute to the societies in which they lived. Mr. Bruhn’s idea also was the leader of ideas that gave rise to services like Uber……..and other ride services…….how many times have you been out late and couldn’t see straight and took a taxi and arrived home safely…..or how many time s have you been stranded or needed to get to that important meeting after getting off the plane and the taxi driver took you right to your destination…no questions asked…..A lot….so think you Mr. Bruhn for your invention and all the millions of people worldwide that were gainfully employed and developed a sense of pride my being able to take care of their families.

The next person on the list of people who have contributed to society is John Boyd Dunlop. Mr. Dunlop had a son who would get headaches whenever he rode his bike on rough roads. So Mr. Dunlop went to work and came up with the idea to put a rubber tube around the wood wheel of his son’s bike. He tweaked the tire until it rolled with no problem. Mr. Dunlop applied for a patent on the tire and was initially granted the patent but later taken away after it was discovered someone had drawn and patented the idea. But that doesn’t take away from Mr. Dunlop’s idea or contribution…as the fact that he physically made the product helped all of us. We can now ride smoothly and independently on roads, hills, and all types of surfaces because of the tire. Thank you Mr. Dunlop.
So the next person on the list of people who have contributed to society is Clara Barton. Clara Barton traveled overseas and was doing humanitarian work and decided to bring the Red Cross to the U.S. Clara Barton responded to the first two majors U.S disasters the Thumb fire and Johnstown Flood. So Clara after those disasters instead of having random people helping had an organization that was organized and able to give people Hope when they needed it the most. How many times not only here but in the world has the red cross shown up to help people with water, clothes, food and money. Plus the red cross that collects blood saves a lot of lives through blood transplants and what not……so thanks again Clara…read more about Clara’s contribution to society here….Click the link.

So the next person on my list in regards to people who contributed to society is none other than John Fitzgerald Kennedy. Now when JFK was in office things were going down. I mean going down….of all the things he did or help get started or helped push for Civil Rights for African-Americans and others, accepting responsibility for the Bay of Pigs, and getting the space program on the road and going…..but I believe the major contribution he made to society was not ending it. When his staff was breathing down his throat during the Cuban Missile Crisis and telling him he better do it…..push the button don’t be a coward…he relaxed looked at the big picture and said okay, what’s really at stake here…..talk about a show down of show downs…..one decision Russia would have fired we would have fired and I wouldn’t be typing on this computer right now and you wouldn’t be reading this blog because none of the advancements..that we see now..would have existed…well don’t take my word for it go read more about what Mr. Kennedy did for society…….click the link.
