I love LOTR and Star Trek. Absolutely, there are heroes to be found among their characters! My LOTR hero is Sam. The ordinary friend who rises to extraordinary heights of courage and strength with love and devotion. As for StarTrek, I just adore Data. It is his intelligence and curiosity in the quest for understanding humans that I appeals to me. I, too, am curious in understanding people.
Interesting that a lot of Lisa's inclusions are warriors and peacemakers. A yin yang balance. Opposites. The divine dichotomy that exists in all of us.
I have to give this idea a lot of thought. My initial instincts is to include my "go-to" heroes: Abraham Lincoln, Jesus Christ, Ghandi, Mother Teresa, Deepak Chopra, Abraham-Hicks, Albert Einstein, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and my family (husband, kids, mother, sister).
I value integrity, honesty, service to others, unconditional love, joy, kindness, goodness, truth, spirituality, creativity, humility, curiosity and growth!
But I think there are more. I definitely would include Lisa (integrity, altruism in action) and Jilly (intelligence, directness, honesty, perseverance with challenges). Jilly, you inspire me to carry on.
