This child deserves all of credit in the world because he has done so much for so many people and look how young he is when I see other kids of his age doing horrible things. I think that he has been hidden for to long at least when it comes to my age but I am so glad to hear of him. His mother must be so proud of him as I would.

For 2011, I vote already for Laura Einsenhower Laura Eisenhower: Unity consciousness will collapse military-industrial complex

I am voting for AL. Everyone of these remarkable humans are inspirational. However, he is reaching so many by turning his own sorrow into hope for so many. Have you ever talked to someone homeless? Not all are manipulators. They are some of the sweetest and helpless souls. It is humbling to my soul.

I'm voting for Maddie Banineau.Wha a selfless young woman.

Joshua goes to school with my son Ali and brings such pure light and joy. Little man's heart is the size of the universe and Joshua has such a clear concise understanding of what he is doing, his goals he is setting and not just doing what he is instructed, but knowledge about Joshuqa's Heart Fd. Inc. We love you Joshie!! Tara and Ali 2011

"Joshua Williams is a genuine role model for all humanity and I am very proud to stand by this young emerging leader as a volunteer to serve a community with a need."

I "Liked" all. They are all very inspiring, in their own ways, and in the context of their circumstances and challenges they faced. They all rose up to the occasion and let their Spirits soar above the limitations. I don't see why they have to "compete" to be the Most Inspiring Person of the Year. They all are already! Congratulations!

ALL that one PERCEIVES , The PERCEPTION with human senses on the/this plan net has been Taught towards meditation. That precludes "as soon as possible" w/ caveat a s a p -- Does a s a p "always say a prayer" pre-date 'fast lane'. Can/ would/ may/ one a n s w e r 'Act Now To Stop War and End Races" ? Only "the fundamental energy of the human spirit "(Love)confirms -or denies consequences ETernal in "con tempt" --LOVE . Time considerations , Not contemp , second> ^^^ LOV JOY PEACE...

Observers of the planet Earth see Communities and subject spirits in contention ; & in / of angst ; "contempt" = confusion/temptation. The only victors in the above ^^^ in a restoration of PEACE ; have evolved to a new "mindset" [repenting] , The Prince of PEACE (dob 1225 /00) as "IMMANUEL" ; CREATORLOV (Gen 1 ; John 1) is the nominee... JESUS of Baaathlehem-Nazareth. SPIRITUAL EVOLUTON IS the only reason FOR JESUS' INTerVention. we are SPIRITS with bodies Not bodies w/ spiri s

Al Barsema gets my vote. Having helped 10,000 homeless people and affected the lives of over 80,000, is a stunning achievement. Yes, my hat is off to all the nominees - with sincere thanks for your contributions. You deserve great respect from all Americans. Take well deserved pride in being selected as a nominee.


01/07/2011 04:05:40 PM

HOW do you vote????


01/07/2011 03:57:07 PM

This is a tough choice. Sgt. Giunta would get my vote in other years, but I must vote for the Chilean miners. It was awe-inspiring, and spirit lifting. God bless both the miners and Sgt. Giunta!
