Who is your hero(es). Please, briefly explain why the named person(s) is your hero.

In life, we meet people either in person, reading about them, watching them in TV or Internet and such. Irrespective of how we met this people, they impact our lives in such a great way that we desire to be like them or to learn 1 or 2 things from them. I bet we call this people who have influenced our lives/ or whom we admire so much our heroes.
Please take a minute and list your hero(es) and let the world know and celebrate their heroic action together

  • Mar 27 2013: I think all people who devote themselves to keep seeking the truth in this world who deserve my admiration.Here I want to share some with u:)
    1.Jiddu Krishnamurti:a few years ago I had been totured by a lot of chaos in my life.I tried very hard to know why.Jiddu Krishnamurti's talks gave me the spiritual inspiration.When I read his text,it sounds a sparking light shinning in my life.I know how treasure he brought to my life.
    2.Abraham Lincoln:I admire him was a such diligent man:self-educated and become a country lawyer ...was the 16th President of the United state.Abolishing slavery,for that he is always being a great man.

      Yes Abraham Lincoln.....great man...I watched the movie "Lincoln" and have read his biography, it is such an incredible life journey.
      I never heard of Jiddu Krishnamurit but will surely check out. And yes spiritual balance is very important to us.

      Love, Mary
