Without getting into religious icons, I'd say I admire people like decent police officers who have to put up with a lot of crap to keep our cities safe. Ditto for the military.

Being a chemist, I also admire all those people in science who toil forever only making only one or two minor breakthroughs in their careers to help make our lives better though the production of pharmaceuticals and other beneficial chemicals.
