    Who is Your Personal Hero?

    Guys, from Joan of Arc to Zhukov, from Martin Luther King to Benazir Bhutto, heroes come in all shapes and sizes and they can be real or imaginary.

    Who inspires you? Who do you think really qualifies for the title of hero?

    Ok, my hero is Mary Magdalene. Why? Cos she got denounced by the mullahs of her time, she had some mental issues also cos of all the pressure she was under, she came to know God himself, and she died fighting for what she believed in Ephesues. She went from being a outcast cos of her sexuality- to teacher, and she wrote a gospel also. So she is a truly holy person.

    Also I love Hypatia of Alexandria cos she was a scientist, apostate, free thinker- again, she got trashed by the mullahs of her time.

    Both Mary and Hypatia inspire me and I think I will die like them also, torn apart by the mob. I wud love to preach, just like what they done.

    Do people choose heroes that resemble them or support what they believe in?

    yakespeare is my personal hero - he is so worldly wise, well travelled, speaks so many languages and has an answer for everything - he is my idol!

    You know, sometimes and stuff, we choose heroes who are bad, but they got some quality we admire. Like me, me first hero was this notorious person and she was terrible actually.

    If you are talking about someone in public life, then I'd have to say Evo Morales, president of Bolivia. I respect him more than any other politician I can think of.

    So he must be more than just a politician?

    Come to think of it....don't have one.

    Plenty of people I respect for what they have accomplished. But, none of them I can say are my personal hero.
