Carol Champion Day

The GOP could take a lesson from the travel industry, for it is a profession in which there is room for everyone and one that honors those who heed its call.

Carol Champion heard the calling. As a lavatory attendant in the London suburb of Lewisham, she does her bit for British tourism with grace and style, and now she has been recognized for her efforts.

The London Tourist Board has bestowed upon Champion a special welcome award in recognition of her contribution to tourism. In a lavish ceremony she was praised for her selfless commitment to this business, and to everybody's business. In her acceptance speech, Champion thanked her boss, her colleagues and, perhaps most poignantly, her customers.

"I love the job," Champion told the Daily Telegraph. "I honestly wouldn't want to do anything else in the world. People seem to get a little bit closer to their emotions in the lavatories."

For me, today is Carol Champion Day, and wherever I go, in my heart, she goes as well.
