    Well, my Mom for sure. She raised my sister and myself and made it through those tough teenage years. She never had any help, monitarily or elsewise, and for that, she is my hero. I hope I can turn out as well as she did.

    My mom for sure. She is just a great person with a great sense of humor. She's the most giving person I know and loves others unconditionally. She's also strong though and won't let you get away with much. :) She's a perfect balance of soft and strong.

    The people who don't make it onto People mag's most beautiful people. The volunteers of this planet who work with children, famiies, the sick, the lost. The unsung everyday heros, the crossing gaurds, the good parents of this world, those people make me cry without fail.

    Michael Pollan, the man who wrote "The Botany Of Desire", and other important articles about things like the legality of growing poppies in your garden.

    He's my hero because he is asking the questions that everyone should be asking about the food we eat, how it's grown, and how much the government is involved in shaping our choices, yet he never preaches, he's funny, he's fearless, and has an incessant curiosity for the world we live in. He inspires me to work harder at my own writing skills, and also to make more purposeful choices about the food I buy and the things I grow.

    Did this question mean who is our hero that we personally know?

    Keith Green: A great man who actually knew what it was to BE a "christian," not just call yourself one. Check out the book "No Compromise" by Melody Green to read the story...
    Alan Greenspan: a man who did his darndest to keep a financial catastrophe from happening. He's a brilliant man and was one of the few governmental figureheads I actually felt like I could trust.
    A musician, who, because this is the way he'd want it, shall go unnamed. He formed a Christian metal band years ago, and when the industry and his fans tried to tell him what he needed to be, he refused to compromise, producing albums that didn't sell, experimenting with various musical genres, and becoming blatantly transparent, all because he thought the message behind the music was the most important thing. Thanks for the inspiration, "JB!"

    My parents...my friends. It's their strength and knowledge. They always know so much more than I do about everything...I'm always learning from them.

    Jack LaLanne. The guy will be 92 years old in Sept. He's the model of eating the right foods all his life and exercising all his life and he's still in great shape, has 20/20 vision and could probably kick our butts in most activities.

    My friend Ned, because he was a
    complete (and completely lovely) human being.
    My friend Connie, who with willingness alone, changed her
    entire world.
    The women I work with, because they spend each day rising again from the ashes.
    Every last Holocaust survivor - because they exsist.
