Gallup’s Most Admired list is out proving once again our inability to answer an open-ended question in an authentic way. What about the man who lost his wife this past year to cancer but who still rides his bike each day to sort mail as the post office slowly dies? And what of the shy lady in her pink Crocs and lime green North Face jacket who comes in each evening to straighten up the messes we’ve made? The two retired angels with steaming mitts of Starbucks standing guard each school morning to safely cross the children, what about them? And how could we overlook that high school girl, the one who’s both smart and pretty, the fabled mermaid learning to navigate life’s channels? The world is not worthy of them but I for one am glad they stay.
