Terry Fox Terry Fox is Canada’s most acclaimed hero; he was an inspiration to virtually all who heard of him. He is best known for running a marathon across Canada to support cancer. Fox was also a victim of cancer and was forced to have one of his legs amputated to stop the spread of cancer. The eventual metastasis of cancer to his lungs forced him to end his quest prematurely, and ultimately cost him his life. Conversely, he left behind a lasting legacy and raised millions of dollars towards cancer research; he managed to exceed previous self imposed expectations, thus making him a success transcending time itself.
You should lift them up and provide to them someone who will be there for support. If the whole world could understand this basic concept of how to treat one another, imagine how much better this world would be. Finally, my reason in choosing this song is that it provides reality within a song that applies to not only the U.S. but the whole world. It also provides support to those who aren’t as fortunate as others and those who are going through hard times in their lives. Lupe Fiasco uses motivational and inspirational phrases throughout his song that motivate me to keep fighting through struggle and pain because in the end it’s worth it.
Chapter six introduces a new character from the story “Seedfolks”, Sam. A seventy-eight-year-old man, who lived in Cleveland and desired to connect all the people from his neighborhood. Since he worked for thirty-six years for different groups and organizations, his mission was to help out all the people. Being an old activist, he spent his entire life to make the world better by promoting world government, planning conferences on civil disobedience, raising money, filling envelopes. A fighter who was always involved in helping out people in need; he continued his job after retirement by switching the battleground, from the entire world to a small neighborhood on Gibb Street.
I think it is amazing that even though he has been through so much he has fought through it because he didn’t want to give up golf. Lee once said "I 've been hit by lightning and been in the Marine Corps for four years. I 've traveled the world and been about everywhere you can imagine. There 's not anything I 'm scared of except my wife." Lee Trevino has always inspired people, whether your golfer or not that you can do anything you want to do.
That inspired me, because he went through so much yet he still accomplished many things. If I can push all those roadblocks of my life a side I can accomplish most of my goals

How many people do you know who are helping millions of people without any expectation? How many people do you know who are making the lives of millions much better without even knowing them; and what if you yourselves are one of those million people? Today I am going to introduce you to Chris Guillebeau, the man, who, notwithstanding his young age, is definitely the person I characterized. Chris Guillebeau, born in 1978, is an American entrepreneur, speaker, blogger, nonfiction author, and traveler. He has evaded a real job for more than a decade, and traveled every single country in the world instead, inspiring the rest of the world to make independent decisions.
When they showed the video in the morning announcements there were people sniffling in my class.” All donations gathered from the weeks leading up to the Terry Fox run by volunteers were directly given to the Terry Fox foundation, where 84 cents of every dollar goes toward funding cancer research. Over 700 000 000 $ worldwide has so far been raised, and every bit was helpful. So far there has been no cure for cancer, so this fight against cancer will continue even after these runs. It is a long road to take, but nonetheless a worthy one to follow. “I 've been running the Terry Fox runs outside of the school for awhile now, even bringing my son along with me since he could walk,” said Ms. Phan, an avid supporter of the run.
Dr Jeffrey Young won the heart of a plentiful amount of people with his kind and hardworking personality. However, the hard battle of cancer is something that he and his family has to face. Furthermore, he is driven with two missions: “significantly reducing companion animal overpopulation throughout the world” where he wants to prevent overpopulation, and “thinking globally: acting locally” where he is trying to get people to help around their neighborhood to help out the world (“Staff”). Working more than 100 hours a week, he built his Denver clinic and started travelling across America with his mobile clinic, which offers animal care to those who struggled to access it or can’t afford it (“Meet Dr Jeff Young”). Dr Jeffrey Young is an admirable person for the reason that he always works towards his goals, is always up for adventure, and is genuinely kind to the animals and people who come into his clinic.
I may not have the aspiration to go to such extremes as Macbeth has to accomplish my goals, but I will surely accept a challenge. My most significant goals in life are to in the future travel the world seeking to aid those in need located poverty stricken countries, become a wholehearted police officer, and last but not least to create a foundation to fund a cause. When it comes to setting a goal, the people who succeed are those who set realistic, specific goals. Personally I believe that the goals I have set are extremely significant and give me something to look forward to once the time is right. My goals to travel the world and aid those in need who are located in poverty stricken countries is the one I personally am most looking forward to achieving the most.
For the Center Mike Webster of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Kansas City Chiefs from 1974-1990, sadly the game started to break him down physically. After years of helmet to helmet collisions, and thousands of reps to be the greatest player he could possibly be in the league Mike started to claim that the sport of football started to give him dementia. Dementia is a general term for a decline in mental ability severe enough to interfere with daily life. Memory loss is an example. Alzheimer 's is the most common type of dementia.
For years the NFL has claimed that concussions on the field and brain impairment after retirement aren’t related, that a hit on the field didn’t lead to a loss in brain cells. Mike Webster played as a center for the Pittsburgh Steelers for 15 years. Nicknamed “Iron Mike” he pushed the Steelers through three super bowl wins and sits at number 75 on the The Sporting News ' list of the 100 Greatest Football Players. With his wife and four kids, Mike retired from football with a full pension and a reputation as one of the greatest football players of all time. From there his retirement took a drastic turn.
