While humans tend to be inspired by natural wonders such as the grand canyon, space, the ocean, etc., I believe that there are special people walking the earth who have been gifted with characters that are more awe-inspiring than any physical thing could be. A poor person who manages to smile every day despite not being able to afford food, a senior citizen shining with grace, manners, and dignity, and so on.Originally Posted by J.D.;3994751;
Phil is one of these people. IMO, Phil's gift was unparalleled exuberance for life. And this makes his death especially tragic.
