The Olympic Torch Relay passed our way today. Thousands of people lined the streets to cheer it on its way. It was quite the spectacle!
The torch is being carried around the UK by 8,000 ‘inspirational people’. A few are celebrities; but, for the most part, the torch is being carried by folk who’ve made a massive contribution to their local communities or overcome serious adversity in some way. The photo shows Rodger Davies, an athlete and businessman who's raised a ton of money for charity over the years and continues to do so despite now being ill. He was one of three torchbearers to carry the flame through our local town.
It's left me musing all day on the notion of 'inspirational people'. Who inspires me? Why do they inspire me? What would it take to become an inspirational person?
How about you? Who inspires you?
