As we enter yet another uncertain year, Inspired is launching a new occasional feature to encourage everyone to remember what — or in this case, who — is constant and comforting around us. "Who Inspires You" is a reader-driven feature where you'll get to tell us about a special person in your life, someone who steadies you, champions you, mentors you, makes you laugh. A parent or child? Teacher or bus driver? Health care provider or lunch lady? Neighbor or spiritual leader? We want to know so that we can celebrate these meaningful and enduring connections. (They do NOT have to be COVID-related.)
We plan to run "Who Inspires You" stories throughout the year.
And as a new year begins, let me say again how lucky I feel to be overseeing this supremely special section that emphasizes everything that is good and hopeful about the world. You just can't get enough of that!
