I’m talking about someone who with either passion or talent has made this world a better place, and maintained their dignity and integrity in the process. Someone who embodies all the traits we want to posess and especially we want our children to possess.
A hero of sorts. I racked my brain for someone famous whose example I would be anxious for my children to follow but all I could come up with were political figures, athletes and media celebrities who have been spoiled by party agenda, greed or fame.
I hate to be a cynic, so I am on a quest. I am curious who your shining examples are. I’ll even turn this quest into a blog giveaway.
The criteria: It doesn’t even have be someone famous. Just tell me about someone who is selfless and good and has somehow contributed to the well-being of others on a large scale. And they have to be living.
The prize: A copy of Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis, because he is a hero of my own. And because I am currently reading the book, and although I have to read some paragraphs three or four times, I am thoroughly enjoying it.
So pray tell, who is your role model?
(Although I am tempted to select a winner based on the idol that best suits my taste, I will select randomly.)
