Today there was a story on the front page of the Sacramento Bee about a local man who had died recently and how much he was missed by the students, teachers and others of the school he worked at. This man chose to work at the school as a janitor and became an important part of the daily life of all who came to school. He had a master's degree in history, but chose to be a janitor, live more simply, but fully. His story is a great reminder to me that it isn't the stuff in life, but the people in our lives that really matter. I'm so glad the Bee had the insight to put his story on page 1.
His name is Roy McKnight. He is a true hero.
