Martin Luther King Jr. ...
Ho Chi Minh...
Franklin D. Roosevelt...
Margaret Thatcher...
Mohandas Gandhi...
David Ben-Gurion...

Whatever happened to influential and world renowned leaders such as these individuals?

I have not had the privilege of experiencing a leader who has made a difference in this world like those in our recent memories.  
Instead, i have grown up in a world full of violence, corruption, and war which has only split us all even further and further apart.
I know that this world has always been full of hate, but if history has taught us anything, its that there has always been someone there that inspired us and brought us together. Gave us hope.

I don't know about you, but i want to be inspired now, not by history books.

The more i thought about it, the more it angered me, not just because of the lack of leadership currently in the world, but because those who are mentioned in history books, don't get enough credit in my eyes.

So right here and now, thats exactly what YOU are going to change!

For this contest, i want you to really think of an individual from the past who you believe has made a difference in this world for the better.

You should know before you get to many entries into this contest that there are copyright laws that need to be acknowledged. You can't use and then re-post any artist or photographer's work on dA without the origional artist's permission (aka people can't go and take pictures off google of FDR and then send them through a filter and post them on dA)

you seriously blow my mind :aww: I admire you for thinking so much about what's going on in the world. I don't know a lot of people who are concerned about that :smooch:

I think its all the CNN and C-SPAN that i watch that helps fuel some of my thoughts and ideas, lol.

Again, thanks so much for the positive feedback and you're very nice comments. I truly appreciate it :D
