Heroes

One of my heroes is Abraham Lincoln, who was president of the United States from March 1861 to April 1865. I resonate with what was important to him and his struggle to express it for all, and to draw people around what was most important as a collective nation. What also inspires me is that he came from poverty, so his values were rooted in justice for all levels of society. His journey from childhood poverty to President of the USA was not smooth, easy or gained by leaps. His journey to top level leadership was a very slow and step by step, with losses and set-backs. On that journey he was guided by his values and convictions, not by the opinions, feelings or whether people around him agreed with him or liked him. His manner was gentle, treating all those around him with dignity.
