I think the first time I ever saw Ellen DeGeneres was on Johnny Carson's old Tonight Show, and I have loved her ever since. She's a fine actress, comedian, and television host, but there is much more. She makes a difference. Ellen is famous for ending her tv show with "Be kind to one another." It's not just a saying though - she means it, and you can see numerous ways she practices what she preaches, every single day. How many checks has she given to needy people on her program? Oh my!
