Muhammad Yunus: Hero

Bruno Giussani at Lunch over IP briefly notes that Muhammad Yunus, who Bruno describes as a "personal hero," has won the Nobel Peace Prize for his work in microlending at GrameenBank. Like Bruno, I, too, greatly admire people like Muhammad and the heart surgeons who spoke at the just concluded ideaFestival.

As much as I admire and appreciate the power of ideas, turning thought into action is a constant struggle for me. I am urged on by people who succeed, who model a life well lived, who step forward.

Someday I want the wrinkles of Jock Brandis.
