"I saw this elderly gentleman dining by himself, with an old picture of a lady in front of him. I though maybe I could brighten his day by talking to him.
As I had assumed, she was his wife. But I didn’t expect such an interesting story. They met when they were both 17. They dated briefly, then lost contact when he went to war and her family moved. But he said he thought about her the entire war. After his return, he decided to look for her. He searched for her for 10 years and never dated anyone. People told him he was crazy, to which he replied “I am. Crazy in love”. On a trip to California, he went to a barber shop. He told the barber how he had been searching for a girl for ten years. The barber went to his phone and called his daughter in. It was her! She had also been searching for him and never dated either.
He proposed immediately and they were married for 55 years before her death 5 years ago. He still celebrates her birthday and their anniversary. He takes her picture with him everywhere and kisses her goodnight.
Some inspiring things he said;
"I was a very rich man. Not with money, but with love"
"I never had a single argument with my wife, but we had lots of debates"
"People are like candles. At any moment a breeze can blow it out, so enjoy the light while you have it."
"Tell your wife that you love her everyday. And be sure to ask her, have I told you that I love you lately?"
Be sure to talk to the elderly. Especially strangers. You may think that you will brighten their day, but you may be surprised that they can actually brighten yours.”

Jennifer Shrader Lawrence: One of the Most Inspiring Women In the World
There are many reasons one would choose Jennifer Lawrence as their role model. First of all, at the early age of 20, she was nominated for the Academy Award For Best Actress. Aside from being one of the best actresses the world has known, she is very down to earth. She knows how to make people laugh without even trying, she has a great sense of humor, and she’s not letting the fame get to her head. She’s not at all embrassed when she makes a mistake or says something out of line during interviews, she doesn’t hold anything back (like peeing in the ocean or talking about camel toes) and she still acts like a little kid at times. Not to mention the fact that she tripped and fell on her way to receiving her well-deserved Oscar but getting up, still looking gorgeous and unfazed.
But the reason she’s such an ideal role model for people everywhere is because she’s not only amazingly flawless, she’s also beautiful on the inside. She is confident with the way she looks as she points out in interviews and magazines. Not in the way that she’s bragging because she thinks she’s perfect, but in the way that she’s happy and content and she doesn’t plan on changing anything about herself.
She shows everyone, most especially young boys and girls, who, especially as teenagers might feel very insecure at this time that you don’t need to starve yourself to be happy and that it’s okay to make mistakes. She shows them that you don’t need to conform to what society wants to see; just be your own person.
She teaches us and inspires us to be ourselves.
