My parents. Why ? See my comment to Darren.
I don’t have one. A lot of people have given me great advice and ideas.
Diana Princess of of Wales, she inspired a lot of people from all walks of life, she may have been a princess but she wasn't afraid to get her hands dirty, I feel she truly was the people's princess that fought for the underdog.
My grandpa. He kept us safe and happy through some very tough times.
My mom. She was a single parent that struggled at times to keep us above the poverty line, but we always had food and shelter. If she was ever worried about finances she never showed it. If a problem arose she didn't overreact. She has a "Ok, that wasn't planned, but let's deal with it and move on" attitude, which she passed on to her kids. (Who on turn passed it on to their kids, inspite of being married to worry warts.) She never put much stock in the "what ifs" and focused on the "what is". As a result she raised 3 successful child who have done a bit better for themselves in this world.
Also my husband. He does so much for others, often without being thanked. He has a strong sense of service to country and thinks everyone should be treated with respect until they give a reason not to show it.
My grandparents. I spent a lot of time with them growing up. They taught me family matters the most and sometimes you have to do what it takes to keep them close. Pap always put me to work and gave me talks while we were working . I still follow most of his advice.
I don't believe in vicarious living.
All the military soldiers who put their lives on the line every day.
