Yesterday’s post was about people who should drop off the face of the earth (and after watching the news this morning, I can think of 8 more who need to join the list) so I wanted to mention people there need to be more of.
We all know I love him, he is gorgeous and sexy. Nuff said!
Whatever you feel about his presidency, their overall message is a good one. Change is good and if you put your mind to something, you can do it. We need to do more for others and national service and helping your fellow man is never a bad thing.
While I am not the biggest Oprah fan myself, she does a lot of good. When I watched part 967 of her farewell special, there was one point where all of the African American men who received a scholarship through her flooded the stage and I could not stop crying. She changed the lives of over 400 men who came form bad neighborhoods by giving them the opportunity to go to college. This was probably the only time in the whole special that Oprah wept uncontrollably. You can tell that was her proudest moment.
What can I say? I have a total girl crush on her! She’s hot and she’s ripped!
She fights for equality among Americans, gay or straight and seeks to end injustices by talking about them and not sweeping them under the rug.
I know I am a Gleek, and I do love to watch the show for entertainment value, but I think it is teaching the world so much more. Sure its glorified and glamorized, but the issues in that show are real issues in the world today. There are thousands of gay teens being tortured daily. There are thousands of less popular kids who have to go to school and deal with the laughter, the pointing and the staring. The show really does follow real world issues and is eye opening to the problems that kids are dealing with today.
You may not know this name, but he is the man who started the It Gets Better project. You may have seen the commercials on TV of celebrities, the President, and others stating- It Gets Better. He put a voice to millions of gay youth in hopes of decreasing the gay teen suicide rate.
Whatever your beliefs and ideals are, across the board, the people on this list are trying to save the world, one person at a time and I can’t think of a better reason to celebrate these people.
