    Okay, here's a few for you to ponder:

    Jesus Christ

    Eleanor of Aquitaine

    Joan f Arc

    Christopher Columbus

    Martin Luther

    Thomas More

    Anne Askew

    Elizabeth I

    Oliver Cromwell

    Isaac Newton

    Anne Hutchinson

    William Penn

    Edward Jenner

    Elizabeth Peabody

    Frederick Douglass

    Sojourner Truth

    Elizabeth Blackwell

    Florence Nightingale

    Antoinette Brown Blackwell

    Jeannette Rankin

    Pope John XXIII

    Malcolm X

    Martin Luther King

    Karen Silkwood

    This is just a very cursory list. Google any of them and I think you'll find still others who were associated with them who were equally unafraid to not conform to the status quo.

    Ben Franklin-Famous for his air baths.Robert E Lee, offered the leadrship of the union armies, opted to fight for his state.Benedict Arnold,could have been the next leader after Washington, oops picked the wrong side.Dennis Rodman, this is obvious.Wilt Chamberlain,I think his record still stands(off court).Yoco Ono/John Lennon,fairly different, in thier times.Custer, sure followed his own drum.Susan B Anthony, at least she got a coin. Carry Nation,no happy hour for this gal.The world loaded with people being differentfor many its just in thier nature

    It's not a matter of daring to be different,it is a matter of being yourself.
