Welcome to Inspiration
We hear a lot about inspiration and being inspired, but what does it really mean? The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines inspiration as, "Something that makes someone want to do something or that gives someone an idea about what to do or create : a force or influence that inspires someone." I'd like to add to the definition, to modify it just a bit. The new and improved definition is: "Inspiration is a force or influence that causes a person or a group of people to feel moved to take action or change." Using this definition as a starting place there are millions, maybe billions, of things to inspire us in our world.
There are many well known people throughout history who have inspired with their courageous and selfless dedication to what we sometimes refer to as, "The greater good." There are also people in our own lives who quietly and without fanfare inspire each of us to do more, to think differently and to leave the world a better place. They are the teachers, the listeners, the activists, the orators, the thinkers, the doers, the leaders...
