Inspirational Tuesday-inspirational people

To be inspirational is to lead by example and encourage other people to feel there is something worthwhile to become and do.

Do you ever think about who inspires you and why? It can be so done you know such as a parent, teacher, sibling, friend or it can be so done we have dad and heard about such as mahatma Gandhi or Nelson Mandela.

No matter who you choose to be your model of inspiration, it is likely that they instil the belief in you that anything is possible.

Many renowned figures of inspiration have gone through very difficult times and managed to turn difficult situations into learning and sometimes triumphs.

By choosing to live, you are choosing to inspire.

Think about who inspires you this Tuesday and in the mean time we'll leave you with some of the most well know inspirational people ......

Helen Keller

Even though she was deaf and blind, Helen Keller learned to communicate and became a world famous supporter of women's suffrage, workers rights, and pacifism.
She triumphed over every obstacle she encountered, and president Johnson awarded her the presidential medal of freedom (one of the two highest honours for civilians) in September of 1964.
The name Helen Keller is known around the world as a symbol of courage in the face of overwhelming odds, yet she was much more than a symbol. She was a woman of intelligence, high ambition and great accomplishment. She devoted her life to helping others.

Martin Luther King

Martin Luther King was a great man who worked for racial equality and civil rights in the United States of America. He experienced racism from an early age and decided to do something about it.

During the 1950's Doctor King became active in the movement for civil rights and racial equality. He
participated in the Montgomery bus boycott and many other peaceful demonstrations that protested the unfair treatment of African Americans. He won the Nobel peace prize in 1964.

Mahatma Gandhi

Gandhi is considered the father of the Indian independence movement. Gandhi spent 20 years in South Africa working to fight discrimination. It was there that he created his concept of satyagraha, a non violent way of protesting against injustices.

Gandhi spent his remaining years trying to better the lives of India's poorest classes.

Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela also known as Madiba and "the Father of the Nation", was the 11th president of South Africa. He was the first person of colour to gain this position, and his was the first democratic election for the country. His rise to office is even more significant considering that it came after spending 27 years imprisoned. He has many significant awards including a Nobel peace prize.

These are just a handful of people that we think are inspiring
