Altruism: the principle or practice of unselfish concern for or devotion to the welfare of others (opposed to egoism)
I can't think of a better word to describe Dr. Mark Holbrook. A man who has dedicated his life to helping others. A police officer, a hostage negotiator, a psychologist and Sunday school teacher. A real Maine native that built his home with his own hands on land his family has owned for five generations. A generous family with the history to prove it. He's simply the embodiment of altruism. After meeting Dr. Holbrook I truly feel he will represent us because he always has albeit not politically ( not yet). Dr. Holbrook will represent us with altruism and only present to us with ALL TRUE ISMS! Imagine a congressman that represents you and tells you the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth? You don't have to imagine, Dr. Holbrook is real.
