who do you find inspiring? maybe it’s a typical hero-type such as a firefighter, astronaut, or marine – or maybe it’s someone else…
Who do you really find inspiring? The people above are easy answers, they come straight to mind and are fairly universally accepted. While I find the people mentioned admirable, when I look for inspiration I look elsewhere. The single mom who works two jobs to feed her children and keep the lights on, the immigrant factory worker who sends his paycheck back home to take care of his elderly parents, or the child with cancer that just keeps fighting for life, because they have no other choice.
What to all of these people have in common? Hope. Hope for the future, hope for life to be fair, hope for life to become less of a burden and more of a gift. To give another person hope you need to show them that even if things are tough right now if they persevere there will be a light at the end of the tunnel, or a reward for the struggles that they are currently facing.
