No clue who that guy on the right is.

What have we been teaching our kids, since the 60s?  There has been some good stuff, some really important stuff--but an awful lot of the stuff has been about personal comfort, personal entertainment, personal goals and satisfactions.  This is pretty much antithetical to the creation of heroes.

Well, heroes never were a dime a dozen.  And they are still out there, every day, putting their lives on the line for something they have decided is more important than themselves. It's celebrities that are cheap and easy to find.

So who determined that the "gentleman" on the right is a hero? But if that is the measuring stick, then yes, we are indeed in trouble!

It was morality that brought Sodom, Gomorrah, ancient Israel, and the Romans down as well Corbin, but we have been too blinded as a nation to see that.
