Real-Life Inspiration

    A HUGE part of IW is Inspirational. The writings posted on IW are meant to inspire others to become better writers, or to follow their dream of becoming a well-loved author. Well, I'd like the site to be a source of another form of inspiration, too. I want to inspire people to go above and beyond, to do what's right. I want to inspire people with stories-true stories-of others finding themselves in awful situations and coming out as a beautiful person, as a gift to the world. Here, I will post links to various stories that I come across that are an inspiration to me. I hope that they will also be an inspiration to others. If you have a story that you would like to share, please post it here. Who knows? You could change someone's life.

    I will also be posting quotes as well as the titles of books that are inspirational to me. Please feel free to do so as well.
