Male Role Models

Burt from Mary Poppins for his steadfast goofiness while ever doomed with Mary, and his compassion for the role of the Father.

Mike Terry from Redbelt for his unyielding commitment to honor over comfort.

Jim Henson for his representation of values through Gonzo (“there’s not a word yet, for old friends who’ve just met… I’m going to Bombay India to become a movie star”) and Kermit.

Wanadi from the Emerald Forest for being the ultimate representation of a great leader: “If I tell a man to do what he does not want to do I am no longer chief.”

Fred Rogers for his speech defending PBS to the US Senate.

Chaney from Hard Times.  I had to choose at least one badass: Charles Bronson.

Bobby Buchanan an advisor at Goddard College consistent in his efforts to be true to an evolving set of values that considers the well-being of humanity within the context of the world.  He truly attempts to live by example.
