How did Pope John Paul II inspire people around the world?

.I understand his famous quote "Be not afraid", but how did the pope inspire people around the world?

Details:

  1. "As the most traveled and one of the longest serving popes in history, Pope John Paul II touched the hearts and minds of countless Catholics and non-Catholics alike. A prolific author with eight languages at his command, John Paul II published five books and a wealth of encyclicals, apostolic exhortations, constitutions, and letters, plus hundreds of other messages. "Be Not Afraid" captures the legacy of faith, hope, and love left behind by this holy man's words and life. You can...understand why more than 5 million people of all faiths filled the streets of Rome to honor his life after his death." He also helped "defeat communism": http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A28398-2005Apr5.html
