Day 20, Tuesday: Who inspires you?

Maya Angelou and Oprah Winfrey both inspire me. They fill me with awe at their wisdom and ability to communicate. Bono and Jimmy Carter inspire me to be more mindful of the plight of others in the world. To feel, really soulfully feel, for those less fortunate than myself.

At school, my students inspire me to be a role model, practice patience, and stretch to make the content creative. A couple of colleagues are outstanding teachers who motivate and inspire me. I want to have the fires burning as they do.

My dad inspires me. I could go on and on about his impact on the community. I could go on and on about what a role model he has been to hundreds of people. And he's MY dad.
