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!
