This week I am sharing about some of the most influential men in my life.
The best way to describe Cicero is, "Bold".
I met Cicero though his writings, "On Duties", "Treatises on Friendship and Old Age",and "Paradoxas". He is known by the Catholic church as a "righteous pagan". He is known to all of us in our political systems and modern philosophies.
Cicero is a part of the voters in my life in the "Democracy of the Dead". His boldness in defense of the Republic, his skill as an orator, his willingness to pick sides and face the consequences, and his wisdom in every day living have impacted how I live today.
He is one of the ancients I have met through others and I feel comfortable calling him a friend. I thank God for the commitment and life of Cicero.
