Day 22 | who do you admire

I had to think long and hard about this one. There are lots of people I admire for I guess pretty shallow reasons - talented singers, beautiful actresses, successful business people...

But who do I really admire above all others?

To help me out, I decided to look up a definition and go from there.

ad·mire  (d-mr)
v. ad·miredad·mir·ingad·mires
1. To regard with pleasure, wonder, and approval.
2. To have a high opinion of; esteem or respect.

So I guess the first one covers my fascination with the cast of Sex and the CIty.

In terms of respect, the person that came straight to mind is my grandfather. He, alongside so many other young men, fought in the second world war and put their lives at risk for our freedom. I can never comprehend the horrors they must have witnessed and how difficult it would have been to go back to a 'normal' life afterwards - if they were lucky enough to come home at all. We owe everything to them and their bravery has my absolute admiration.
