Inspiration is really important in life. Everyone needs at least a little bit of it. “Every decision starts with a little bit of inspiration.” – Unknown

Inspiration. It’s what drives people to do things. What inspires you? Is it a person, an object, or something else? Martin Luther King Jr. was inspired by a dream. Harriet Tubman was inspired by slavery.

“I’m inspired by other people, especially those who overcame struggles and triumphed in the end. They are inspirational to everyone because we all go through our own personal challenges in life,” said Mrs. P.J., Dobie Journalism teacher. “One of my biggest inspirations is my mom. She has been through so much in her life, but she still has the biggest heart.”

Inspiration is important, If you’re not inspired why would you do anything? You would sit there and watch other people, thinking about what impact you want to leave in this world. Zoriah Briseno, 8th grader, said.“ I want everyone to know how I made a difference.”

Inspiration helps people make an impact. “It’s important because it pushes you to do the things you want to do,” said Olivia Thomas.

Do you want people to remember you, or do you want to leave the earth silently, your name forgotten?

People want to make an impact. Inspiration is what drives you to do so.
Your time here also matters.

“I want to live life to the fullest,” said Briseno. “Inspiration helps you know that you matter. Your not yesterday’s bag of trash. You’re awesome!”
