James is 86. When con­tem­po­raries might be set­tling for “hame and hearth,” he trav­els a lot, as he puts it, in the ser­vice of jus­tice.

He writes to po­lit­i­cal lead­ers, at­tempt­ing to hold them ac­count­able.

He records songs and mes­sages on his dic­ta­phone and put them on­line on YouTube.

He helps peo­ple with ad­dic­tions and has made count­less ap­pear­ances in court, giv­ing le­gal rep­re­sen­ta­tion to those who have none.

In the com­ments be­neath one of his videos, there are fre­quent thanks from peo­ple who are in­spired and up­lifted just by meet­ing him.

The day I met him, I’d been say­ing there are no or­di­nary peo­ple. I firmly be­lieve that. I also be­lieve there are some who are ex­traor­di­nary, in that they seem to walk closer to God than most.

And you, James, are def­i­nitely one of those!
