I just read an article about a professor who was killed at Virginia Tech being named the Most Inspiring Person of 2007.
Not to diminish his accomplishments, but it made me think about who inspired me most in 2007.
It was an easy choice.
I have a friend who has not had an easy life. Her husband died of a heart attack a few weeks before I met her in 1994. She went on to raise two teenage boys by herself. In the last two years she has lost her father, her brother, her sister and her mother.
And yet when I saw her last weekend she was still the warm and loving person who is my best friend.
Her strength and courage inspires me to keep on keeping on.
