My Hero

There's been so much discussion about the Pope, and I've tried not to get cranky about it. I recognize he did some good things, and maybe I don't care enough to speak ill of the dead. But I hate the male heiarchy he was a product of, and the compassionless clinging to questionable dogma in the face of common sense.

And because I'm going away for a couple days (hot on the heels of a fairly barren week of posting) I want to celebrate someone who has been my own hero since I was a kid, and who embodies the saintly love of creation and the good works that, to me, go far beyond John Paul's. Leave someone on the blog whose good karma will maybe rub off.


If I could be anyone else,
it would probably be him.
