That is what I call a real man. Some one who shows his love and genuinely cares. Actions speak louder than words. He is the most deserving person to go on the cover of Time magazine.

With all the cruelty in this world, it would be nice to put someone on the cover of Tim that represented the love and the respect for living creatures that is out there.

If only all humans had such love and respect for animals and life.

Entering Lake Superior cold water at anytime in the year is a feat of bravery in itself, to do so for such a beautiful reason is more than brave it is selfless love for another life. John and Schoep deserve to be on the cover of Time because this man and his dog show the world what life and love is about. No politics, no anger, no bias just love and compassion, this is what is missing in far to many people.
