It is TIME for real heroes. I realize Time is more news driven but a special edition is also an option with stories that reflect who we really are or should be as Americans, as humans. It' TIME?

Better than any politician or movie star..a real person like the rest of us. John wasn't out to impress anyone, change anyone, make money off of anyone. All John wanted was to love his dog which thanks to one photographer, changed the whole world into loving one dog. Schoep.

John and his friendship with his dog Shoep was, and still is, an inspiring story he allowed so many people to share with him. In a time of such ugliness in the world it is truly an uplifting part of my day to share a FB post with John. In my opinion John is Man of the Year regardless.
