Yesterday morning I ran into a friend I hadn’t seen for a long time. My friend does not hold any career or civic position that elevates him above the masses. He’s a responsible husband and father. His interaction with others is characterized by thoughtfulness. He takes his family to church on Sunday (or Saturday night since his church has that option). There is nothing flashy about him and there is nothing about him that anybody would call irritating. He’s an ordinary guy.

I started thinking about how I define ordinary. The attention and commitment Larry gives his family is well above the national average. His social demeanor is that of a true gentleman. These are a couple of the ways he is not ordinary.
