31 Day Photo Challenge // Day 16

Day 16 - A picture of someone who inspires you.

“I am not afraid…I was born to do this.”

I've always looked up to Joan of Arc. He history & legend is as well documented as it is argued over but the strength of her character is the most important & NON disputed in all accounts. To start from nothing, rise to the top for freedom, & die for your country...there is nothing more inspirational than that to me.

The following is one of my favorite quotes of all time & accredited to, you guessed it, Joan of Arc.

“One life is all we have and we live it as we believe in living it. But to sacrifice what you are and to live without belief, that is a fate more terrible than dying.”
