Famous Admirable Women (and why we love them)

Sounds like a book title, doesn't it? :smileyhappy:

Who are your favorite famous women and why?

Mother Teresa, because she epitomizes the best of human beings. She donated her life to helping others.


I'm humbled by her spirit.

Marie Curie. What a remarkable and selfless woman, who cared more about medicine than her own "legacy." I highly recommend her bio.

Golda Mier I believe to be a great leader. I also think that Deborah the great judge in the old testiment of the Bible.

"I'm going to fight for my cause every day as your President. I'm going to fight to make sure every American has every reason to thank God, as I thank Him: that I'm an American, a proud citizen of the greatest country on earth, and with hard work, strong faith and a little courage, great things are always within our reach. Fight with me. Fight with me." - John McCain

I saw this thread yesterday,and i wanted time to think about it.This is my answer also.We need more people like her in the world.She was a true gift from God.
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.We didn't pass it to our children in our bloodstream.It must be fought for,protected,and handed on for them to do the same,or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.

RE: Famous Admirable Women (and why we love them)

there are a lot that could be mentioned, but i will mention cindy mccain as a TYPE of woman i commend.

she has done much good with and for kids for years around the world. and in spite of her politically famous husband OR her own wealth, almost none of us knew exactly how much she really had done over the years. i remember we discussed that fact at the time, not sure if it was here or on the HSNR board when i was there. but to me it says a lot that she just calmly went out and did what she felt was right, as so many women (and people in general) do without announcing to the world what she is doing and has done... unlike oprah, for example.

much as we found out two of our own posters have done, mentioned in another thread.

kudos to all!
