It was obvious the real competitors in the race for Person of the Year 2014 was between the Ferguson protesters and the Ebola Fighters, and it looks like the latter emerged victorious.
Time magazine decided to recognize the selected individuals who have dedicated their time, resources and intelligence to potentially eradicating the deadly disease that has been responsible for numerous casualties in West Africa.
Dr. Jerry Brown, Salame Karwah, Foday Gallah, Dr. Kent Brantly and Ella Watson-Stryker all shared honors for their combined contribution and dedication to an ongoing cause.
Time’s editor, Nancy Gibbs explained the motivation behind the decision, “The rest of the world can sleep at night because a group of men and women are willing to stand and fight.”
