Who I Admire by Brian Anthony

Admiration is one of those concepts that can get overused but in its truest form is a thing of simplistic beauty. My admiration list is truly those closest to me:


My father and grandfather: without these 2 men, I'm not the person I am today and I will never ever come close to matching the level of impact they've had on others...


My mom: I don't always call people or want to take pictures but for her I will (even though I have to be forced to) because she has been my #1 supporter from day 1 and all the compassion and love I have stems from her grace and devotion to others.....


My wife: the amount of pride I have in watching her change the landscape of this community in the passionate way that she does is unmatched - and yet, she still somehow finds the time to laugh with me as she helps make me a better man and husband.....


My teaching colleagues: we do a job that is always underappreciated, taken for granted, underfunded, misunderstood, and at times seems thankless but the way that I've seen your care for, support, and give everything to your students makes me proud that I have served with you.....


My closest family and friends: everyone is out here on our journeys but we are all succeeding in our own ways even if it ain't always easy or sweet - but we're out here waking up everyday and doing our thing and that's all that matters.....
