Heroes come in many forms.
There are those who provide inspiration to us because they are thrust into the firmament by a single act or event; there are those associated with a movement - whether brief or sustained - who summon our better angels.
Then there are those who live a life so exemplary- so filled with rich example - that the entire arc of their lives cries out for a deep appreciation of how a life, well lived, can lift us all to greater heights - inspiring us to live our own lives with greater purpose, clarity and impact.
Jack Dunfey was just such a man.
