Welcome to My Influences site, a site dedicated to a sampling of the many women and men who have profoundly influenced my life for the good. In a world rife with evil and suffering, sometimes we forget or take for granted the many heroes, saints and visionaries who keep the planet evolving towards peace and goodness. This is my effort to pay respect and to honor the many luminaries who have modeled for me what it is to be truly human.
I hope that this site can prove to be informative and also an inspiration for you. Certainly you may not agree with all my choices but perhaps this can be a catalyst for you to think of your own influences and pause to give thanks for the many people in your life who have been role models for you.
This site contains a large number of links. It is inevitable that some of the links will become broken. If you find any, please feel free to report them to me and I will promptly fix them. I also would love to hear your comments and possibly your own lists. Please use my contact page for this purpose.
