Inspiration from the movie ‘Braveheart’
The epic movie ‘Braveheart’ featuring Mel Gibson as Scottish hero William Wallace was selected in the American Film Institute’s Top 100 Most Inspiring Films of All Time (#62). We all love to watch films that inspire us, motivate us, and encourage us to make a difference.
How inspiring is it that one man, William Wallace, could motivate so many people to do great things in their lives and actually change the course of history? This video is one of my all time favourites. FREEDOM!!!
Is there more to life than just just living? What would you sacrifice your life for? What inspires people to follow someone, even to their own almost certain death? What is more valuable than life itself?
See the Braveheart Freedom Speech in the short video below
- a scene like that makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up!
