All of us, I’m sure, have heroes. People we look up to and hope to emulate. Mine are Winston Churchill, Ronald Reagan, and Mother Theresa.
Today is the 100th anniversary of Mother Theresa’s birth. The things I admire about her include not only her selflessness and dedication to the poor but her practical view of the world. She understood that not everyone was cut out to lead a life like hers and admired and respected those in other fields. All she asked was that those of us who chose to use our talents in the fields of science and business give back some of our earnings so hers and other charities could do their work. Fair enough!
