#373. December 10th, 2015: Peter Sacco

The only reason I still believe in superheroes is because Peter Sacco exists. A man of the utmost integrity and dedication to others, Peter has inspired me to be a better human being since the minute I met him. Seeing and hearing about all that he does is certainly important and wowing, because he seriously changes the world everyday, but to me, the most incredible part of knowing Peter is the way he makes you feel. He listens. He looks you in the eye. He cares about what you have to say. He remembers. He smiles with sincerity. He thinks before he speaks. He is so much what I want to be in life, and he makes me feel that way not in jealously but in encouragement to achieve better and take my own path. Peter, thank you so much for being a part of my college experience and for being someone I can count on in times of great joy and great challenge. Thank you so much for having a spectacular laugh and warm personality and for always being willing to chat, even if you’re racing to the next world-changing event or meeting. You really do make time for others, and I respect the hell out of that. Thank you so much for living a life of ambition and kindness and for taking us along for the ride. Even from thousands of miles away you still manage (with ease I might add) to make me feel hopeful and happy. Thank you for being you, Peter.
