I’ve spent some time searching “Who were/are my heroes?” and oddly enough for me, it goes _way back_.
Mr Rogers. He fed my view of people.
George Carlin. “It’s all bullshit, including me”.
Joseph Campbell: “It’s all metaphors in the end”
Carl Sagan: “There’s more than we don’t know than we do know and what we do know already is amazing and I can’t wait to see what the future brings.”
So, that’s pretty much my heroes in a nutshell.
