Ok- question of the day!
"Who inspires you most?" (it can be family, celebrities, friends etc-(passed away or present) no limits.)
For me its my mum who is SO strong, and my dear paternal grandmother who passed away in '92. both of these very different women just epitomise what strength and compassion are. Anyone who can face life's major challenges with dignity and a forgiving spirit just amazes me. There are also several mods/members here who inspire me. My uncle who died of cancer 3 yrs ago- he was way too young but never once did he say "why me?" . He accepted his terminal diagnosis with all he had and died knowing he had done the best he could.
Celebrity wise, Bono & Bob Geldof for Live Aid and Make Poverty History campaigns. Martin Luther King for having a dream.
Eddie Vedder of the group Pearl Jam inspires me with his positive attitude and another 2 musicians- Tori Amos and Fiona Apple who were both raped at a young age and yet managed to get past that and write amazing, beautiful piano driven music- that inspires me. Anyone living with/fighting cancer- as an ex oncology nurse, i see no greater inspiration than the will to live.
And that leaves people who were martyred for their christian faith and love of God.
Now- how about you?
