Any way you look at it, you have to admire the work certain people do in this world.

Nurses work ridiculously long hours, sometimes with patients who are terminal, tasked with providing loving care under all sorts of circumstances.  Anyone who goes into this profession are seriously dedicated to caring for people’s health.

People who run mass transportation.  Out here in suburbia we drive an awful lot of cars, but there are any number of places that survive on buses, taxis, and subways.  The people who operate those are the ones who make it all work for the rest of us.  They’re how we get to work, how we visit family and friends, how we go to doctor and dentist appointments.

Adults who share their gifts with others.  The photographer who offers camera classes for beginners.  The artist who sponsors an after school club.  The everyday citizen who teaches ESL classes in her spare time.  There’s no more admirable trait than a willingness to share your knowledge.

Dreamers, inventors, any who aspire to make the world a better place.  Without these people society would stand still and go stagnant.

See, I bet you thought I was gonna talk about teachers and police officers and fire fighters.  Those folks deserve admiration as well, there’s no doubt about it, but the world turns on so much more than a few well sung heroes.
