Heroes

A list of all of my heroes.
Who are yours?

Florence Nightingale
She was a wealthy young woman with a chance to live a quiet, comfortable life.
And yet she gave it up to be a nurse. She saved lives then, and her methods have
saved lives now.

Aung San Suu Kyi
A peaceful fighter for Burmese democracy, she has been unjustly imprisoned (she was
just lately granted her freedom). But she has still not given up.

Joan of Arc
I may not be Catholic, but Joan of Arc still inspires me.

Ronald Reagan
He was a president who got things done. If he was our president today, our country
would be on the right track.

Albert Einstein
The most brilliant man the world has ever seen. He never listened to the critics.

Mother Theresa
She did so much good in this world and left behind a wonderful legacy.

Black Agnes
(Also known as Lady Agnes Randolph of Dunbar)
When her husband was way at war, the English Earl of Salisbury tried to take her castle, and
ultimately Scotland itself. But she refused to surrender, and fought him with everything
she had (which, admittedly, wasn't much.) And yet she was able to beat him back.

Gandhi
He was able to protest British rule in India peacefully, and I can't think of any one
more true to himself than he was.

Winston Churchill
The British Prime Minister during WWII, he learned from his mistakes and
was a major leader for the Allies.

George Washington
Our first president and arguably one of the best, and humblest of men.
Who else do you know would have turned down the chance to be a king?

Joseph of Egypt
He was far from home when he was carried into Egypt. And yet not only did he shine in
everything he did, but he resisted temptation and stayed true.

I Am An Otter

You're an otter, mate! Another good friend of Redwall, you are a natural swimmer and a deadly fighter especially with a long bow or javellin. Camp Willow is your home, just as Redwall is your second home. You have a good heart and a strong sense of loyalty. You absolutely love Shrimp and Hotroot soup, living by the motto "Ain't nothing 'otter for an Otter!".
