The Wall of Honor is for those that do the right thing, often when they have faced with a difficult choice. Our recipients aren't perfect...no one is... but the behavior they've demonstrated is behavior that we want the rest of our society to emulate. If you have someone you'd like us to recognize then use our contact page to send us your nomination, a link or description of the person and activity as well as your rational for the nomination.
