Topic: Albert Schweitzer once said, "In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit."  Who rekindles your inner spirit?
Each year since 2000, Beliefnet has honored a special individual (or group of individuals) with our Most Inspiring Person of the Year award. And, as in past years, we'd like your help in deciding who should receive this award. Who do you think deserves to be our Most Inspiring Person of 2007?  You may nominate celebrities, sports figures, religious and spiritual leaders, people you have heard about in the news, or your own family and friends. If you know the nominee personally, we encourage you to send photos. 

What to do: Send us your nominees (you may nominate more than one person). Please include a brief description (200 words or less) of why this person is inspiring. Include specific examples of what he or she has done this year that was inspiring.
