10 People Who Inspire You

July 11th, 2005 by Yano

…in no particular order. This was a pretty tough list to make. I’ve decided to do people who are currently alive, because to include people in past would make it all too easy.

1) My sisters and father - we’ve been through a lot and their strength helps be overcome a lot
2) Dave, my husband - he’s works so hard to get where he is right now, and made a lot of sacrifices
3) Lance Armstrong - he said he would overcome cancer and race again, and he did
4) My best friend Jaygee - She left her job, her family, and her hometown to follow her dreams to be a performer
5) Bill Clinton - Even after being president, he does so much for charity and is still very respected by people in the world
6) Nancy Reagan - She is just amazing, with all that she’s been through she has handled it all with grace
7) My ex-coworker Vlad - gave up a great job to open up a coffee house and live the American Dream
8) Bill Gates - for reasons I don’t have to explain
9) Oprah Winfrey - everything she touches turns to gold
10) Angelina Jolie - I’m gonna get crap for this, I’m sure, but aside from the Brad Pitt thing, she has done so much for the United Nations as an ambassador overseas

A pretty lackluster list, I know, but I know I’m missing a lot of people!

    This one is a bit difficult. Being something of a contrarian, I don’t place a lot of stock in people. I realize that people can be, just like Tommy Lee Jones said in Men in Black, “dumb, panicky sheep”, so I don’t often look t…
