A Meditation on Faith: Role Models

The greatest teachers are always the most courageous lovers…

… gracious, unassuming, and largely unsung.

… possessed of the uncommon conviction and courage to say and do what others are afraid to say and do.

The embodiment of generosity and compassion, they do not tell us how to be happy…

… but show us how to matter.

They are the real prophets… those who illuminate the meaning of life not by their professions, but by their exemplary actions.

If I do not see them, I am looking for love in all the wrong places.
