DALLAS, TX -- When it comes to Dr. Raymund King, there are plenty of reasons why "everybody loves Raymund!" Thursday, he was honored by Dallas Life and our very own Yolonda Williams was asked to emcee the event.
The largest homeless center in North Texas presented Dr. King with its 2016 Legends of Service Award.
Dallas Life's goal is to give the homeless, who seek help at the shelter, a second chance at life. And Dr. King has been an influential part of that mission.
King's mission was inspired by the bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, which took the lives of 168 people in 1995. Dr. Raymund King was only six short blocks away from the bombing. He raced to the scene to try to save as many as he could and watched as dozens lost their lives.
A week after the bombing, he decided to apply to law school.
Fast-forward to 2016, now a physician and an attorney in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, King serves on the board of seven local, national and international charities, providing financial help and a helping hand to the homeless, children and military veterans.
Now that, deserves a standing ovation!
