In an echo to @Zee’s post, I’d have to say:
My wife, whom I swear can make something from nothing, ALWAYS keeps her promises, and does whatever needs doing no matter how hard it might be. Besides, she has put up with me for over 44 years, which is worth a medal in itself.
My mother, who, despite tremendous challenges, lived according to her faith every day, and remains a source of inspiration long after leaving this life.
My father, who taught me a valuable trade and to think independently, along with a number of other bedrock principles.
There are a number of other people whom, while I may disagree with them in part or in whole, I nevertheless admire them for attributes of courage or integrity or steadfastness which I find inspiring.
