A worthy role model

I wrote about role models once before and how our young people often look up to someone who is unworthy (in my opinion). Did you watch the All-Star baseball game on Tuesday night?  Even if you are not a fan, it had some memorable moments.  MLB chose to honor People Magazine’s Tribute for Heroes and…
