Dont get me wrong there are true local heroes like the abandoned mum working two jobs to raise a family in a mobile home,mental health nurses that have to work and be nice in nightmare environments etc however society and the media are not presenting us anyone worthy of adoration or respect,is this on purpose?

There are insiprational people, a ton of them.
They are paraded in front of us daily on the news on the tube BUT what they inspire doesnt match up to whats good, or needed.
The inspirational poster children are bought and paid for, promoted, marketed, pumped into your senses, the childrens senses, everyones senses, from cartoons to politics, to billboards and magazine ads.
Inspire to buy, to follow, to believe blindly, to fear to hate, to desire, to envy, inspire to forget.
You, have been inspired to write this by the noticeable void,

To be an inspirational person, one needs to have the ideals that the common person can relate to, see problems to be overcomed against all odds and succeed, elevating not only themselves but others as well.
The belief that there is no truly inspiration people anymore is false, by the simple fact that you could enjoy wine with your family over dinner together and hold a rational discussion of the merits of people worthy of role leaders signifies an inspirational model that could come only from some decent mortal or immortal that taught mankind the importance of communication, more so with family, relatives and friends.
It is from such foundations that one will aspire forward in life, for the warmth and feeling of love that you enjoyed amongst family and good company, that you will ensure such closeness is maintained forever, even at the cost of your own life.
You need no other inspirational figure or teacher to elevate you to greatness. They had already done all they could throughout the centuries of civilisation. You, your family, relatives and friends are your inspirations for the further evolution of mankind to fulfill our destiny to the stars.
Your right about there not being any inspirational people in the spotlight. However, I wouldn't suggest that there are none at all. The real hero's in this world don't live to be in the spotlight making claims they can solve our problems. No, the true inspriational ones are those who simply treat others the way they would want to be treated. Don't turn their backs when asked for help and will run to help without being asked
