Just wondering if people could pick one person in history, political, cultural, religious, etc. but preferably a person from recent political history that is inspirational to you in how they lived their life and you think of them and their approach, in your life and their contribution to society. This isn't a debate so any side of the political spectrum is welcome. I'll start with mine. Ed Roberts, founder of the independent living movement (could look him up on Wikipedia if you wish) but everyone must have someone so post whoever you think has shaped your life and society for the better.
