“Those who overcome obstacles despite being disadvantaged, in order to help others,
or to inspire others to do likewise. Those who selflessly are willing to make personal sacrifices to give others a better future. Those who defy all odds to recover from serious illness despite being given very little chance of survival. Those who speak out rather than suffer in silence.
i.e. The Man who Just Completed the Trans American Triatholon.
The Emergency Services and Armed Forces.
My Nephew who was premature - and was 1 decision away from having his life support turned off, who is now 14.
And the Pakistani Girl who was shot for speaking out about her beliefs despite knowing the risks.
And lastly ordinary Parents and Working families who are struggling through difficult times, with pressure on them, who have to work a balance between upsetting their children at Christmas and providing the essentials week in week out.”

“All the people Chappy said, and Chappy himself - he continues to be positive and to debate politely and articulately even when there are strong differences of opinion. It's always easier to be negative.
Also, someone called George Gurdjieff.”

“MusicalK - Flattery will get you everywhere.. well a cup of tea at least.. but seriously don't take me as an inspiration - I just stick up for myself and others, and get upset with folks who don't evaluate situations before drawing conclusions, but I am not really inspirational, there are others who are far more deserving of that mantle.”
