Hey, America! — Heroes Needed

Written by R.G. Yoho on July 23, 2013

However, America is once again facing a moral, economic, and spiritual crisis. Our nation is starving for leadership. Our country is crying out for some heroes.

But sadly, and increasingly, America learns it cannot turn to Washington for heroes or leadership.

In a time when our country has finally proven to the entire world that it’s not a land of racial hatred, by virtue of electing a black man to America’s highest office, that man doesn’t appeal to our better angels. Instead, our president incites our bitter anger, by seeking to rekindle the fires of racial strife.

On Capitol Hill, we witness the members of both parties more interested in passing legislation than they are with preserving liberty.

America is desperately looking for heroes.

Perhaps we need to remind ourselves that we will not find our real heroes in Washington or Hollywood.

Perhaps we should go back to looking for them in the places we’ve always found them.

America’s heroes can often be found in our homes and churches; they are our parents, pastors, priests, and rabbis. Other heroes are wearing military uniforms or swapping stories at the local VFW.

With the problems America is facing right now, she is currently searching for heroes.

Auditions are being held in your homes and communities.

The qualifications for the position are indeed high.

There are no age limits. The position is open to everyone, regardless of sex, race, or religion. It requires love, sacrifice, perseverance, faith, hard work, patriotism, dedication, self-reliance, and a desire to inspire those same qualities in others around you.

America desperately needs you right now. Perhaps you will choose to apply for the position.

If qualified, you can start today.
