Miep Gies (1909 - 2010) During World War II, along with her husband Jan Gies and others, she protected Anne Frank and her family by hiding them in a secret annex above Anne's father's shop in Amsterdam, she saved the diary that made Anne Frank a household name.
Miep Gies (1909-2010) one of the four office workers who helped hide the Franks, van Pels' and Mr Pfeffer in the back of the warehouse building between 1942 and 1944 ~ She saved Anne Frank's diary from the Secret Annex after the arrest and gave it to Otto [Anne's father] after the war. Miep died aged 100 on 11th January 2010. May our memories of her live on for generations to come.xx ~ Miep Gies by Charlieee23.deviantart.com on @deviantART
In an interview after the war, Miep Gies talked about why she helped the people in hiding: "I was able to help those people. They were powerless, and they didn’t know where to turn. I always emphasize that we were not heroes. We simply did our duty as human beings: helping others who were in need. A lot of people did not do that in those times: some out of fear. If someone is afraid then you can hardly blame them." This is one of the people who helped Anne Frank's family.

I read Anne Frank's diary when I was around 12 years old I guess. She inspired me to keep my own and I filled 8 volumes of teen age angst over the next 4 years. Nothing nearly as deep as hers though.

Terry Fox. He was attempting to run across Canada to raise money for cancer research. He was unable to complete his run due his cancer returning. #marathon of hope #cancer #hero #leg #run #inspire #canada #80's.
12. INTO THE WIND - an ESPN 30 for 30 film about college student Terry Fox who after having his leg amputated due to cancer set out to run across Canada to raise money for cancer research. To date, the foundation that resulted from his efforts has raised more than 500 million dollars. I have to wonder if cancer treatment has really come that far since 1980 when he attempted his "marathon of hope." I could be jaded, but I've lost too many people to that dreaded disease.

Mahatma Gandhi | Even after his death, Gandhi's commitment to non-violence and his belief in simple living--making his own clothes, eating a vegetarian diet, and using fasts for self-purification as well as a means of protest--have been a beacon of hope for oppressed and marginalized people throughout the world.
LOVE THIS MAN! Each one has to find his peace from within. And peace to be real must be unaffected by outside circumstances. — Mahatma Gandhi
Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948), Indian leader Mohandas Karamchand (2 October 1869 – 30 January 1948) was the preeminent leader of Indian independence movement in British-ruled India. Employing nonviolent civil disobedience, Gandhi led India to independence and inspired movements for civil rights and self-determination across the world. The honorific Mahatma (Sanskrit: "high-souled", "venerable")—applied to him first in 1914 in South Africa,—is now used worldwide. He is also called Bapu (Gujarati: endearment for "father", "papa") in India. Born and raised in a Hindu merchant caste family in coastal Gujarat, western India, and trained in law at the Inner Temple, London, Gandhi first employed nonviolent civil disobedience as an expatriate lawyer in South Africa, in the resident Indian community's struggle for civil rights. After his return to India in 1915, he set about organising peasants, farmers, and urban labourers to protest against excessive land-tax and discrimination. Assuming leadership of the Indian National Congress in 1921, Gandhi led nationwide campaigns for easing poverty, expanding women's rights, building religious and ethnic amity, ending untouchability, but above all for achieving Swaraj or self-rule.

Henry David Thoreau walked the earth gently from July 12, 1817 - 1862. He lies in Sleepy Hollow cemetery in Concord Mass., alongside Hawthorne and Emerson… Before he died Thoreau exclaimed: “Now comes good sailing!” “A truly good book teaches me better than to read it. I must soon lay it down, and commence living on its hint. What I began by reading, I must finish by acting.” — Henry David Thoreau
