inspiration.

This morning I happened across this story on Good Morning America. Not sure what caught my ear, most likely the mention of Lawrence, Kansas, where I went to college and lived for five years (note: I couldn’t embed the video, but you can watch the story at the link above).  The anchors are reporting on their life’s inspirations, and George Stephanopoulos chose Loring Henderson. Currently, Henderson runs the only homeless shelter in Lawrence (which could use your help), but he’s given so much more. He’s helped refugees get citizenship and build lives, volunteered with countless people society has forgotten and tirelessly worked to raise funds because he thinks it’s the right thing to do.

One of Loring Henderson's former colleagues commented, "Think about it, to be able to do all that stuff for nothing, you know, for $15,000 or $20,000 a year? Who does that?" Marla Mirabile noted. "A saint. That's Loring."(Photo: Ed Zurga via AP/ABC)
