    Yeonmi Park, Stephen Hawking and Nick Vujicic. They have demonstrated something amazing, something that all humans should internalise: that it does not at all matter who you are, where you were born, what physical condition you find yourself in, how others treat you... You can achieve massive success under any circumstances, if you believe in yourself and do everything in your power to build a happy life.

    Yeonmi Park was born in North Korea, escaped and spent 2 years in China as a sex slave, and finally managed to reach South Korea - yet, unlike most other North Koreans, that hide their identity and try to live a quiet life, she travels around the world, tells her story openly and always smiles. What she has gone through would break 99.999% of people, yet it made her into one of the strongest and most optimistic persons ever to walk this planet.

    Stephen Hawking was diagnosed with a very rare paralysing condition when he was in his early 20-s, and the doctors told him that, at most, he had 3 years left. It did not stop him, and despite becoming fully paralysed over the years, he proceeded to become one of the most productive physicists in human history. He was supposed to die at 25, yet he lived until 76, had two wives and three children, and continued writing papers and giving interviews all over the world until very end.

    Nick Vujicic was born without limbs, was ridiculed by his peers at high school and thought his life was meaningless. He even attempted to commit suicide at the age of 15. Yet he found a meaning in his life in travelling around the world and giving motivational speeches. He is one of the happiest and funniest guys in the world, who helped out millions of people, and who I would absolutely love to give a handshake... oh, sorry. Okay, a hug.

    These three persons are my personal heroes, and I dream of meeting the two of them (Stephen, sadly, passed away recently) at some point in my life. Nick and Yeonmi are fairly young (Yeonmi is actually younger than me), so it will probably happen!

    I would say Stephen Hawking for the same reasons @MayCaesar said. I would also say:
    Image result for jim al khaliliJim Al Kalili for explaining the world of physics to everyone and he deserves credit for all the documentaries he has made and books he has written.
  • Neil Degrasse Tyson and Stephen Hawking for exploring, explaining, and showing the wonderful world of science to millions, as well as inspiring millions of children.
    Not every quote you read on the internet is true- Abraham Lincoln

    Good call on the statue nominations. I couldn't think of any, but when you said Steven Hawking, I realized that should have been a no brainer to me. I never heard of the other two, but I would certainty say they are deserving of a statue. But I would definitely say Bob Dylan will probably have one some day. He's pretty much considered the Shakespeare of our day.

    The next person to have a statue is Probably whoever is the next authoritarian dictator.

    ***** The next person to have a statue is Probably whoever is the next authoritarian dictator.

    You’re right they most likely will erect a statue of Trump

    It will probably be some politician. They seem to be all in the same boat together as far as self importance.
  • Someone with a large enough wallet and even larger ego.
  • MyCatIsCuteMyCatIsCute 10 Pts   -  
    It would probably be Elon Musk.

    Well he is good.
    Your love became a chorus played only by my memory.
  • ScienceRulesScienceRules 941 Pts   -  
    Oh yes. He should definitely have one. He was great.
    Your love became a chorus played only by my memory.

    Well, I remember one poem from my school days.

    ( By:- Percy Shelley )

    I met a traveller from an antique land,
    Who said—“Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
    Stand in the desert. . . . Near them, on the sand,
    Half sunk a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
    And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
    Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
    Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
    The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed;
    And on the pedestal, these words appear:
    My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings;
    Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!
    Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
    Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare
    The lone and level sands stretch far away.”

    This poem explains that statue was shattered due to time despite it was made by him to show that how great he was! 

    So I think that if you anyone is great then people would remember him/her automatically, statues are not needed to mark his/her greatness.

    I think it'll be the modern American; 400LBs, sitting on a hoveround with a cell phone in one hand, a burger in the other, and wearing a mask to keep them safe.
