540. Write a letter to the editor praising someone in public life
Updated November 15, 2009
The world seems to have gone a little mad – there are dozens of TV shows and web sites dedicated to nothing more than ridiculing people in public life and showcasing all the stupid and crazy things that they do. With all of that mess going on, it’s hard to find someone worth admiring.
The big secret is that people who live in the public eye are just people – they’re messy, they make mistakes, they buy coffee and groceries – and maybe we need to leave them alone a little bit.
When I find someone worth admiring, I’ll be sure to quietly bring him or her to a few people’s attention.
