People Who Inspire

Today I’d like to introduce you to a few people I’ve found on Youtube and Facebook who are an inspiration to us all. Settle in for the next 30 minutes or so and have your day transformed. Can’t stay that long? Watch what you can and come back later to finish. Give yourself that gift.

First let me introduce you to Jack Rushton:

From Youtube: A quadriplegic on a respirator since 1989, Jack Rushton uses light comedy and inspirational messages to bring hope to those overcoming life’s challenges. Contact Jack at

I saw another video this week on Facebook that shows so simply and so clearly the miracle life would be if we just helped each other.  I couldn’t find this to embed (if anyone know of such a location please leave a comment and I will embed it) but even if you don’t have a Facebook account, you can view this at:

(It is very short, but will open your heart. Take the time to click on it and then come back.)

And then, of course, you’ve probably already seen this, Jill Bolte Taylor’s Stoke of Insight. But it’s worth watching again. We have the capacity to view life in ways we never dreamed of and in doing so, change everything.

From Youtube: Neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor had an opportunity few brain scientists would wish for: One morning, she realized she was having a massive stroke. As it happened — as she felt her brain functions slip away one by one, speech, movement, understanding — she studied and remembered every moment. This is a powerful story about how our brains define us and connect us to the world and to one another.
