Across the ages, many regular, everyday people have taken huge steps in their lives to push forward groundbreaking ideas and ideals for future generations. Others had much less noble goals and accomplished less beneficial results. Throughout history, they all strived in their own way to make a difference in the world we live in. Whether they were inventors, politicians, artists, martyrs, pirates, or dictators, they all had an impact on the way we live today. That’s why-- in tribute to our past and recognition of those who came before us-- action figures, statues, busts, and bobble heads have been developed of Albert Einstein, Edgar Allen Poe, Mozart, Abraham Lincoln, Jesus, Lenin, and many more, as an inspiration and a means of remembering.
