Ellen is one of my biggest heroes. You'll probably get an idea why from this video.
She states her values as:
"Honesty, Equality, Kindness, Compassion, Treating people the way you want to be treated, and Helping those in need."
I can't agree more I've always valued equality and honesty above all else. I hope to teach by example and pass on those values. I can't seem to understand why equality is such a foreign concept to most people. I don't care what religion, social status or political position you are I don't think that is an excuse for wanting to take away someones chance at happiness or freedom.
