There’s an old and silly saying that parents tend to deploy when their kids are taking it too far. “Enough is enough,” they say. But this isn’t true. Enough is rarely enough. Just ask the men on this list, who keep finding news ways to help and new problems to both illuminate and solve. It’s not righteousness, much less single-mindedness, that makes these men impressive. It’s tirelessness. Also, patience. They help others without making it about themselves. And they seem to be having a good time doing it.
The world could use more activists, and these men model selflessness to the next generation. They make civic-mindedness look cool, which it really is. It really, really is.
