Lori: Okaaayy. My question is…if you were to meet the person who most inspires you who would it be and what would you tell them?
Trey: My dad is really the only person who inspires me and I’m pretty sure he knows it.
Tim: Muhammad ali, hands down. I don’t know what I’d say to him beside the fact that he is amazing at what he did. I mean when he said, “He who is not courageous enough to take risks will not accomplish nothing in life,” just kind of stuck with me. Well, him and Eminem.
Wes: What if you don’t have anyone who inspires you
Wes: Seriously. We’re all just going to list people that most people find inspirational and we’d all say the same things. What inspires me isn’t necessarily people.
Trey: Do you want me to give you the definition of inspire?
Wes: I know what it means. Kindness inspires me. Thinking inspires me. Unusual things inspire me. Not people.
Tim: And usually Josh gives the complex answers haha
Josh: Instead of saying Spielberg, I’ll say Christopher Nolan (currently inspires me). I would tell him about captivating his films are. How he needs to give me a few pointers and point me in the direction I should be heading because I want to inspire people too. And then it turns into a full-blown fantasy because he buys me coffee and takes me to one of his sets and -
Tim: Slow down there film geek
Josh: I have a lot of passion lol
Trey: Way more passion than Wes
Wes: I find offense in that
Amber: I think that the people I love are the ones that inspire me. I think that’s it’s because of all of my friends I was inspired to be a happier, friendlier person.
Ellie: There are a lot of people from history that inspire me. Albert Einstein, Amelia Earhart, Emily Dickinson… It’s hard to know what I would say to them. I’d probably feel kind of inferior in front of someone so iconic.
Kayleigh: As much as I love my family and Lani, I think I have to agree with Wes. I think what inspires me are the little things that I love about life, like the falling rain or cute animals or beautiful paintings… And for me, I need things like this to inspire me to just keep living and to erase the bad thoughts that haunt me everyday. But, yeah, I think that this world is a pretty amazing place. It just… you know, has a few bad people in it.
