My mother-She raised my brother and I with little or no help from the time he was 5 and I was 1. Despite a few bumps in the road, we both turned out relatively OK. Seeing her do this has taught me to be independent. When a friend needs something, she is always the first to try to help them. It has taught me to always be there for a friend. She has also taught me, especially this week, that I can always count on her to be there for me, no matter what.

Bono and U2-Their lyrics and beautiful music have influenced my spiritual beliefs in the past year.

My main influences:

My Dad-a good liberal who always wanted to keep me informed of the issues

Bono/U2-need I say more?

Suffering-seeing it, whether it be fellow humans or the environment, drives me to do something about it.

Robert Kennedy-he actually wanted to do something about the suffering in the world

My parents: my mother with her love even through her darkest days, passing her talent for sewing to me this gives us a great bond and mutual interest.

My dad, a quiet unassuming man with inner strength for us all.

My husband, always there for me and me for him, solid and dependable and tells me he loves me.

My father in law, a great politician with wise words.

My children, their take on the world keeps me young

Finally Margaret Thatcher, she put us through a year long strike when I was in my late teens, ultimately resulting in my dad being made redundant.
This brought my inner strength and political opinions to the fore, for that I have to thank her (couldn't thank her for anything else).

Maggie make it quick, I have the champagne on ice...........
